World running ranking

Summed up the world marathon = running results 2019. It is always important to understand where you are, how your running movement is located in relation to the world, so that there are no illusions and bitter disappointments when faced with reality.Besides, this is also the results “tenths” and with what we are entering the “twenties”.

Brett Larnett, who has lived in Japan for a long time and is a big fan of running, did a great job and calculated the marathon rating of the countries of the world 2019.

The criterion for this rating is the average result of the 10 best marathon runners in each country. A very correct criterion, I completely agree with it. It reflects the top level of marathon movement, one fast runner can grow almost everywhere, but 10 fast runners are already a reflection of the real picture.

I will say more that it is the marathon rating that determines the picture of the entire running movement in the country. In many countries, stadium athletics is very small in adulthood, in many there is none at all. But marathons run almost everywhere.

And the best marathon runners represent the country’s running movement … Although I really love stadium running, for me he is the embodiment of the art of running, not a marathon, but I’m not a sectarian, so now the marathon is a mirror of the development of running in the country, a fact.

And for men , and among women Kenya and Ethiopia fought for leadership, which is not a surprise.

Ethiopia won among men, a very high density of results among leaders and an amazing average result: 2:03:27!

Kenya – 2:04:42.

Third place is … Bahrain, haha ​​- let’s be honest, it’s also Kenya, but already the second echelon – 2:08:26.

Morocco 4th place – 2:08:26.

Then Uganda – the closest neighbors and relatives of Kenyans, 5th place 2:08:49.

6th place closest neighbors and relatives of Ethiopians Eritrea – 2:08:54.

Japan is the best non-African country, 7th place – 2:09:18.

The Japanese are the last to jump out of 2:10!

USA – 8th place , 2:10:16.

Spain, a country with a solid marathon history, 9th place – 2:10:56

And Great Britain closes the top 10 – 2:11: 22.

Kenya won in women, largely thanks to the fantastic world record Brigitte Cosgey – 2:19:08.

But Ethiopia lost quite a bit 2:19:19!

This is the level!

But Japanese women brought their country to third place – 2:25:10. The gap is huge, of course.

Then Kenya-2 Bahrain.

And the fifth place is in the United States, American women run very well – 2:25:29. Striking progress among British women in 2019: sixth place with an excellent result of 2:29:40.

Then China, North Korea – yes, in the DPRK, women are consistently running a marathon very well.

Australia has 9th place – 2:30:41

And Ukraine closes the top ten – 2:30:50! Congratulations to the Ukrainian women – an excellent level!

But there is nothing to congratulate Russian marathoners and marathoners on.

Rather, you can congratulate only one runner – Marina Kovaleva, this is the only person in Russia who completed the Olympic Tokyo 2020 standard – 2:29:26.

The women took the 15th place – 2:33:52, losing one place and 40 seconds to Belarus.

But the men spent a record weak year, I don’t even remember if there was ever such a weak level of our top runners in general, in relative results after the year 1960, and in absolute terms after the year 1978.

31st place and 2:15:59 in our top ten. Nobody even came close to the Olympic standard of 2:11:30.

Stepan Kiselev has the best result 2:12:56.

And all the results are shown at home with all the ensuing circumstances – from the accuracy of measuring the track to the rigidity of doping control and compliance with the rules of the competition, such as drinking and eating outside nutritional points and pacemaking on the track.

So this is a failure, guys. There is still time until the end of the qualifying period for the Olympic Marathon, it ends on May 31, 2020.

I really hope that there will be at least an occasion to talk about the capabilities of our runners and runners in any status for the Tokyo Olympics- 2020. Tokyo promises to be a fantastically interesting start in all athletics. And the marathons in Sapporo – the marathons were moved there because of the heat – will also be very beautiful and hot in all respects.

But you must first complete the qualification! 2019 is the most the lowest point of Russian running in its entire history, but pushing off from the bottom, you can also rise to the surface! What I wish to all runners and runners in the upcoming 2020! To everyone running!
