Where an athlete placed in a given event determined how many of the total available points they earned. To make sure these power rankings did not overly value frequency of participation, but rather measured fitness capacity and top-end consistency, only the top 3 performances from each athlete were considered. The maximum number of points an athlete could have achieved is therefore 2,800, which Mat Fraser did with a 1st at the 2018 Games (1,000 points), a 1st in the 2019 Open (1,000 points) and a 1st at Dubai (800 points).

Other Notes:
