July 2017 Updates to the Top 10 Ratings

After the completion of all Regional Championships in mid-July, I have updated the Top 10 Rankings.

TOP 10 Rated Male Athletes

Jan and Sebi are still the clear #1 and #2, both have slightly improved their ratings. With DNFs in their most recent races, the old #3 (Nils) and #4 (Brent) have dropped back to the end of the Top 10. Andi Böcherer has taken over #3, ensuring that the Germans still occupy the first three positions. Patrik Nilsson has climbed from #7 to #4, and Bart Aernouts (now #6), Tim Don (#7) and Tim O’Donnell (#8) have entered the Top 10 by winning their most recent races with fast times.

TOP 10 Swim-Rated Male Athletes

The old #1 Dylan McNeice hasn’t been able to race an Ironman for some time, he’s therefore dropped out of the rankings for now with Clayton Fettell moving into the #1 spot. Among some other small changes Brad Kahlefeldt has now completed three races and is eligible for a ranking, he’s now the #7 ranked swimmer.
