Men's U.S. Ranking Index
By Athlete, 1963-2001
While Track & Field
News began its famous World Rankings with the 1947 season, U.S.
Rankings did not begin until 1963 (1971 in the marathon, 1972 in the
walks). In '63 the Rankings also included resident foreigners. They
have subsequently been removed, so in some events the Rankings do not
go 10-deep in '63.
You will also find reduced
listings for the years 1947-62. Athletes listed there represent Americans
who made the World Rankings and have simply been pulled across in the
2003, Track & Field News
