Fantasy Diamond League (© DL)
With the imminent start of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League, the IAAF is happy to announce the return of the Fantasy Diamond League.
As in previous years, the 2019 edition follows the athletes who compete in the 32 disciplines at the 14 meetings of the IAAF Diamond League this year. This provides players with the chance to compare their athletics knowledge against fellow track and field fans from around the world.
Players have to identify nine athletes at each IAAF Diamond League meeting who they think will place highest in their events. Just as with the real IAAF Diamond League itself, points are then awarded based on how well the athletes perform.
As well as the overall leader board, players can also set up private leagues with their friends and colleagues.
The winners of each meeting – and the overall winner at the end of the season – will win money-can't-buy memorabilia from various meetings on the 2019 IAAF Diamond League circuit.
If you took part in last year's Fantasy Diamond League, your account will still be active for this year.
The IAAF Diamond League is composed of 14 of the best invitational track and field meetings in the world. The meetings are spread across Asia, Europe, North America and Africa, 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. The winners of each discipline in the finals will receive a US$40,000 cash prize and a spectacular Diamond Trophy.
