IAAF.org: Distance Running Preview of the Golden League with Bekele and Dibaba

2006-05-27

Kenenisa Bekele and Tirunesh Dibaba, two of the sport’s biggest stars, will headline their respective 5000m races when the six meeting IAAF Golden League series commences in Oslo on 2 June, with the Exxon Mobil Bislett Games.

The young Ethiopian stars, just 23 and 20 respectively, have already collectively amassed 18 World titles on the track and in cross country in their short careers, and at Oslo’s Bislett Games, will begin their pursuit of one of the few prizes missing from their large trophy cases – a slice of the $1 million IAAF Golden League Jackpot.

 
 
This year there are eleven designated Golden League Jackpot events, and athletes who win at any five of the six meetings will share a purse of $500,000, while an additional $500,000 is on offer to be shared by athletes who succeed in winning their event a sixth time.
