Ghanaian long jumper Ignatius Gaisah has dropped to third place on the latest IAAF ranking despite his recent impressive outing in Germany.

Gaisah trails American Dwight Phillips and a new chart leader, Panama's Irving Saladino.

Saladino has forced reigning World and Olympic champion Dwight Phillips who has been leading the Long Jump Event Ranking for exactly 150 weeks, to second position.

The 23-year-old took the number one spot after winning the Golden Gala title with an 8.45m leap.

Phillips is now a single point behind Saladino.
