Kemel THOMPSONJAM400mH158
Jeremy WARINERUSA400m158
Rashid RAMZI BRN800m,1500m158
Wallace SPEARMONUSA200m158

Seeing a name like Jeremy Wariner's near the bottom of the list is not indicative of a poor season so far, just one that hasn't started in earnest yet.

The formula:
*World Ranking points divided by ten
*best point total from any single event on the World Athletics tour
*best finish in any one event at the World Athletics Final or World Cross Country long course (points system similar to that of the WAT, but higher)
*best finish in any one event at either World Cup or World Indoor Championships
It can't be helped, but this system ends up excluding multi-event athletes, racewalkers, and road racers.

If anyone is interested in getting into a fantasy league, post a comment.

I'll play. I have this crazy husband who always watches track and other boring sports like soccer -- I might as well get something out of it.
