With the South African Championships, the end of the US Spartan Series, and Spartan Morzine all taking place this month, our committee has had their hands full ranking our incredible athletes in the World OCR Rankings.
After winning the Spartan US Series, plus taking 3rd place in Utah Sprint, and 1st in the Utah Super, Webster (CA, 1) shot straight back to 1st place in the female leaderboard.
Holding steady in 3rd place is Guillot-Boisset (FRA, 3), after an unbelievable performance at Morzine. Racing 3 times over the weekend, she not only took first place in the Ultra, the Beast, and the Super but also dominated with a lead of almost 3 hours in the incredibly tough Ultra Beast. She will be one to watch come October.
Having been on our committee’s radar for a while now, Rachel Corigliano (USA, 4) moved up to 4th position after dominating at Savage race, ending up in 8th and 6th place overall, across both genders. Currently in great racing form, we will be waiting to see what she achieves next as she seems to be on the up and up.
Both making massive gains are South Africans Cahill (SA, 5) and Eksteen (SA, 8) after coming 1st and 2nd in the SA Championships, respectively.
Also storming back to the top of the leaderboard is the male half of the powerhouse couple that is Webster-Atkins, Atkins (CA, 1) with an equally impressive month, culminating in being the first male in the US Spartan Series, plus a 2nd place in the Utah Super, and 1st in the Sprint.
Hot on his tail is Luna-Lima (USA, 2) who has been bouncing around the rankings for a while, but with a 2nd place male in the Spartan Series US, and 1st at the Utah Super he’s certainly earned his 2nd position placing.
Ones to watch
Tyler Veermer (USA, 6) is a new entry on our rankings, after a breakout performance in Utah with a 4th place in the Sprint, and a 3rd place podium in the Super, coming in less than a minute behind Atkins (CA, 1).
