3K Ultimate Rankings
Who are the top indoor 3k runners of all-time, regardless of gender?
How does Meseret Defar's career measure up to Kenenisa Bekele's? Haile Gebrselassie's to Genzebe Dibaba's?
These were just some of the questions we set out to answer by calculating FloTrack’s indoor 3k Ultimate Rankings, a points-based system that factors in three elements of an athlete’s résumé to determine greatness in track and field:
- PR ranking all-time (scored through top 20 all-time)
- Total number of top 20 all-time performances
Using this formula, the goal was to form a baseline where men and women could be compared on an equal playing field. The result was the definitive list of the top 20 indoor 3k runners in world history.
