The IAAF Diamond League is delighted to announce the distribution of event disciplines for the 2015 season.
Commencing on 15 May 2015 in Doha (QAT), the sixth season of the IAAF Diamond League comprises 14 of the best invitational track and field meetings in the world.
The meetings are spread across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the USA, and compose the top tier of the IAAF’s global one-day meeting competition structure.
This series of 14 meetings, which began in 2010, showcases 32 event disciplines which are carefully distributed among the meetings.
In each of the 32 event disciplines there is a 'Diamond Race' with points available throughout the 14-meeting season. Winners of each Diamond Race receive a USD $40,000 cash prize and a spectacular trophy, but more importantly they will have shown season-long consistency to earn the unchallenged honour of being the world No.1.
Each of the 32 event disciplines is staged seven times with the top three athletes being awarded points at each meeting – four for the winner, two for second place, and one for third – with the exception being the finals in Zurich (SUI) on 3 September 2015 and Brussels (BEL) on 11 September 2015, where the points are doubled.
Get set for the IAAF Diamond League 2015!
