WKO World Grand Prix Ranking Points Are:
Gold Medallist 4 Points
Silver Medallist 3 Points
Bronze Medallist 2 Points
Entering Each Tournament if not a medallist 1 Point
The fighter with the most points of the weight division will be listed as Number 1.
However with so many Age/Weight divisions there would be far too many lists to compile. We appreciate this is unfair to all the individual age groups to only recognise the weight group. So we have 1 weight group for all ages as the season progresses.
Then once the season has finished all the fighters who are No1 of their Actual Age/Weight & Gender are all joint No1.
