Post-Daegu World Rankings are published

200m: Veronica Campbell-Brown did not compete in some of the big meets, but her shape prior to the World Championships was very promising. She did not let her fans down and won the world 200m title. Now she is ranked 4th in the event. Silver medallist Carmelita Jeter is the leader and bronze medallist Allyson Felix is in 2nd position.

800m:
Pre-Daegu leader, Kenia Sinclair, had to content with a 7th place in Korea and is now 3rd in the rankings, behind world champion Mariya Savinova and silver medallist Caster Semenya. Bronze medallist Janeth Jepkosgei is in 4th position.

1500m:
A prediction killing finish in Daegu. Jenny Barringer-Simpson was 17th in the rankings before the World Championships. Now she is 6th - and she is the world champion. Silver medallist Hannah England was in 7th, now she is 5th. Bronze medallist Natalia Rodriguez was not even ranked before Daegu as she did not have enough competitions. She is now 18th. The ranking leader of the event is still Maryam Yusuf Jamal, but lots of changes can happen in the upcoming weeks.

5000m: Not much surprise here. World ranking leader Vivian Jepkemoi Cheruiyot won the gold medal (her second gold of the championships). Silver medallist Sylvia Kibet moved from 12th to 6th place while bronze medallist Meseret Defar is in 2nd, Daegu-4th Sentayehu Ejigu is in 3rd position. Mercy Cherono was 5th in Daegu and is 5th in the rankings, too.

100m Hurdles
: Daegu finishing order was very close to the pre-Daegu rankings in this event, as well. Pre-WCH ranking leader Sally Pearson became world champion and remained in 1st position. Danielle Carruthers was 2nd before Daegu and got the silver medal there. She is now ranked 2nd. Kellie Wells was 3rd before Daegu, but fell in the Final and dropped to 5th. Tiffany Ofili-Porter was 4th in the pre-Daegu rankings and was 4th in Korea, she is now ranked 3rd. Bronze medallist Dawn Harper moved up from 5th to 4th position.

400m Hurdles: Kaliese Spencer was so good before Dageu but could only finish 4th there. She is still, however, ranked 1st, but the gap between her and world champion Lashinda Demus, in 2nd position, became small.

High Jump: Silver medallist Blanka VlašiŠ is still ranked 1st, but  by the next edition of the rankings she will lose her high points for her last year's performance in Split at the World Continental Cup. However the upcoming meeting can also affect the next rankings.. World champion Anna Chicherova is in 2nd position while bronze medallist Antonietta Di Martino is in 3rd.

Triple Jump
: Olha Saladukha was leading the pre-Daegu rankings and is now world champion. Injured Yargelis Savigne (6th in Daegu) is still keeping the 2nd rank ahead of Olga Rakypova and Caterine Ibarguen.

Hammer Throw:
World record holder and world ranking leader Betty Heidler got the silver medal in Daegu, but i still ranked as Nr.1 of the event. World champion Tatyana Lysenko moved from 3rd to 2nd place while bronze medallist Wenxiu Zhang is in 3rd.

Javelin Throw: Pre-Daegu leader Christina Obergföll could not medal in Korea, finished 'only' 4th. Now it's silver medallist Barbora Špotáková who tops the event ranking, followed by world champion Mariya Abakumova. Bronze medallist Sunette Viljoen is in 4th position.

Raec Walk: World champion Olga Kaniskina leads the World Rankings, followed by silver medallist Hong Liu and bronze medallist Anisiya Kornikova-Kirdyapkina.
