Poland’s Rav Rykowski has entered the World’s top-10 for the first time in the latest Racketlon World Rankings.
The 2017 European Champion has moved two spots to No.9 after reaching the final of the Vienna Classics in February.
Arnaud Genin has also risen to a career-high No.13 after winning the Vienna Classics while Christine Seehofer’s title further enforces her spot at the top of the Women’s World Rankings.
Rykowski and Genin marching up the World Rankings
The two Vienna Classics Men’s A finalists are both appropriately rewarded with a new career-high ranking.
Rykowski leapfrogs the now-retired Cedric Junillon and U21 World Champion Leon Griffiths to land at No.9.
Arnaud Genin moves up three spots from No.16 to No.13 as he overtakes Michi Dickert, Nikola Mikac and Mohammed Tarik Koubaa.
The Vienna Classics champion will see another healthy rankings boost in the March rankings after finishing 3rd at the Club La Santa Open. This could see him sneak into the top-10 for the first time.
There are also career highs for Bernhard Pilsz (26), Tommi Laine (64), Philipp Schneider (81) and Kim Niederhausen (93).
Christine Seehofer tightens grip on No.1
There is little change in the Women’s Rankings following the latest update. Christine Seehofer’s Vienna Classics title has merely tightened her grip on the World No.1 spot.
A runner-up spot for Bettina Bugl has seen her climb back to World No.3, overtaking Nicole Eisler in the process.
Elisabeth Seehofer moves up one spot to a career-high No.11, leaving her close to joining her sister in the top-10.
A 4th-place finish for Virag Sakovics has seen her advance to a new career-high of No.23 while Stine Krogsoe also hits new heights at No.20.
Elsewhere there are career highs for Laura Smits (30), Irina Olsacher (55) and Shaghyegh Tabatabaie (99).
