World OCR Rankings – August 2022

As the 2022 OCRWC draws ever closer, we are still seeing new names enter the leaderboard, proving that competition is still fierce out there, with the women’s competition showing extremely strong and consistent performances.

For the first time this season, 2019 Women’s Champion Karin Karlsson (SWE, 6) has placed, in joint 6th with 8.50 points, after her performances at the Swedish Championships, and Spartan Morzine, the question is will she be racing at OCRWC? She ties with Rose Wetzel (USA, 6) who placed 3rd at the Utah Beast.

Hot tip from earlier in the season, Hawk Call (USA, 3) has entered the top ten with a strong 3rd position after placing first ahead of Ryan Atkins (CAN, 4) at Utah.

Sitting top of the men’s board is another new entry in Samuel Castela (PT, 1) after taking two Gold pyramids at the Spartan Midlands weekend, closely followed by Thomas Buyle (BEL, 2) who dropped down one place from last month despite an impressive performance in Morzine.

More double weekend performances receiving recognition are Lisa Segers (BEL, 8) with a win and 2nd place in Morzine., Nicki Johnson (UK, 7) with Midlands Beast 1st and Super 2nd, and Roman Toth (CZ, 6) with two 2nd places at Midlands.

Emma Cook-Clarke (CAN, 1) has narrowly swiped 1st position from Kris Rugloski (USA, 2), also placing 1st at Utah. Rugloski earned her spot with her number one position in both the Savage & Spartan leaderboards.

Ryan Kempson (USA, 3) re-enters in joint third position after placing top of the men’s Savage leaderboard and also taking the win at Savage Boston.

Francesca started running OCR in 2013, and after devouring all the information she could find on the sport, she began writing about it herself. With OCR quickly gaining traction in the UK where she lives, she launched her own site, Mud Is My Makeup, in 2014.

Since then she has gone on to produce content for publications including OCR Europe, Mud Run Guide, Mudstacle, Obstacle Race Magazine, and Obstacle Mud Runner Magazine, as well as OCRWC.

Francesca loves exploring every aspect of the sport as much as she loves to explore the courses themselves. Very much an average athlete, her goal has always been to encourage the everyday person to get muddy and active and discover how much joy suffering out on a course can bring.

Her first experience of OCRWC was the epic Blue Mountain in 2016, although she’d been following the event from the early days. The whole atmosphere, set up, and experience had her hooked and she knew that this was an organization that she not only wanted to support, but be involved with, and to help bring the spirit of OCRWC to a wider audience.
