What could correct ranking bring to sportsman? Is eight an optimal number? What could be the final score of this Top 8 card of sportsmen? Reza Dilmaghanian answers. ()
I love the idea of a top 8. Most athletes aspire to reach the top, before this ranking system we based our rankings on opinions. Now there's factual information that will determine a athletes rankings.
I believe the top 8 is optimal for a few reasons; top 3 often discourages those that place is between 4th and 8th place. Often the way brackets play in your favor can determine your ultimate placing in an event. So having an annual rankings based off consistency will give us a real teir of the top athletes.
It should also inspire those who don't always place top three to show up to more events because they want to get ranked and in the future top 8 contestants may have more options for sponsors.
As for the upcoming top 8 event this set of athletes should prove more than entertaining. Obviously, everyone wants to see Levan and Denis. This one potential match alone could change the sport. I’m predicting denis takes 1st. Followed by Levan in 2nd. With a close 3rd between Rustam and Prudnik.
