The 2011 season ending ranking list from WMF has been published by WMF.
» Men and ladies WMF ranking list
On the ladies side two young players with many ranking point still counting from successful juniors days are in the two first positions. Still ranked in the top position is Karin Heschl of Austria. Karin managed to hold on to her first position from the spring by a rather successful Championship in Stockholm with one bronze and one fourth place.
The only lady with a better result from Stockholm is of course Bianca Zodrow who raced up on the rankings from 22nd position to end up on bronze position.
In second position Czech Republic’s Jana Nakladalova that had a fairly good championship in Stockholm with 9th position. Together with her good merits from 2009 and 2010 she I still on the silver position.
The five best ladies of 2011 according to WMF are:
1. Bianca Zodrow, Germany 2632 points
2. Sandra Wicki, Switzerland 2133 points
3. Eva Andersson, Sweden 1992 points
4. Bianca Utzig, Austria 1962 points
5. Karin Hescl, Austria 1832 points
Noteworthy is that the top five ladies all have higher ranking points now than the leader one year back which was tied between Elisabeth Gruber and Rebecca Weber with 3.848 points.
At the men’s side Walter Erlbruch, Germany is found in top as was also the case one year ago. Walter was 2011 leaving the competition in the rankings with little to hope for. After a very successful year with the gold in Stockholm to top he broke the one year ranking record held by Anders Olsson from 2008 (3454 points) with over 175 points ending the 2011 season with 3629 points.
On second position almost as successful as Walter is the WMF nr 1 from this spring Filiph Svensson of Sweden. Also he had a very good year this year with 2720 points in 2011. Even if Walter was very successful Filiph is only 90 points behind him in silver position.
In third position and up 19 positions from a year ago we find Austrias Gunther Inmann. He was the second best player in 2011 with 2947 points. And since he didn’t play in 2008 he can now fully count his 3 years in the ranking and that means a third place overall.
The five best men of 2011 according to WMF are:
1. Walter Erlbruch, Germany 3629 points
2. Gunther Inmann, Austria 2947 points
3. Filiph Svensson, Sweden 2720 points
