Jamaica is ranked highest in 2022 based on their data outside of the World Championships leaderboard in Oregon, finishing first in the women’s track events.

In second place is the United States, while Ethiopia, Great Britain, Kenya and the Netherlands occupy the remaining four positions ahead of Nigeria.

This ranking was done via awarding leaderboard points for a top finish to the right. Eight points for the first, down to one point for the eighth.

Nigeria amassed a total of thirteen points, seeing Tobi Amusan as the country’s highest points giver after his world title-winning performance in the 100m hurdles, which awards the maximum eight points.

The women’s 4x100m took five points from her fourth-place finish in the final, setting an African record (AR) of 42.22 s.

With the talent pool currently on the Nigerian women’s roster and all now motivated by Amusan’s outstanding historic feats this season, Nigerian athletics enthusiasts can dream of an improved ranking in 2023.

Here are the top 10 nations in the world published on World Athletics social media platforms and the points accumulated.
