From April IAAF has plans to change the athletics ranking system.

Quote
What's the change?
A new world ranking system - similar to those seen in tennis or golf - will provide a run-down of the best athletes in each event.

So in the same way that tennis' tour organisers, through heavy-duty number crunching, define Roger Federer and Simona Halep as the best players in the world, the IAAF will rank their stars.

It won't end the eternal bar-room debate, but it will attempt to provide an objective answer.

What rides on it?
Not just prestige. Qualification for IAAF events will move away from obtaining one-off qualifications times, distances and heights and instead be based on athletes' position in the rankings.

No longer will it be possible to bank on an early-season high-altitude outlier performance as a ticket to the biggest championships.

Fun fact:

Dane Bird Smith won a national U/20 title for QLD in the 4x400m as a 48 second runner.

He's also dropped a cheeky 3.57 in the 1500m as a youngster

And last but not least.... he can walk the 5km in 18 minutes. Faster than most runners can run the 5km, he could beat them without even running.... The bird can fly but chooses to walk.

"IMO, It didn't happen if it's not on vid/official"- adarqui

It's easier to keep up than it is to catch up...
