  • Austrian ranker

    Before Lukas WeiƟhaidinger, who was the most recent Austrian male to rank in the top 10? No fair looking up, just take a guess.

    The two heptathletes last year. Suspect you meant men only, though.

          Could be, I think he was an American who switched nationalities so he could compete in Moscow 1980. Did you look it up or are you guessing? More recently, Mark McKoy competed for Austria briefly, I am unsure if he made the rankings as an Austrian.

                    Did Gerhard Mayer ever rank? Seem to recall he was a WC finalist.

                        Klaus Bodenmuller probably ranked in the SP in the early '90s?

                          At least you didn't bring it more up to date and invoke Godwin's Law. :-)
