IAAF.org: Million Dollar Mutola Queen of Golden League

The win is historic

2003-09-14

Mozambique’s Maria Mutola leaves the stadium here this evening one million dollars richer after yet another stunning run that secured her victory in the IAAF Golden League Jackpot.

The win is historic as Mutola becomes, in the process, the first athlete ever to win outright the jackpot and the highest earning woman athlete in history, dethroning Gabriel Szabo from that pinnacle as the only woman ever to have won more than a million dollars in one year.

Mutola can add to the million dollar cheque she picked up this evening, $40,000 dollars from her win in the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, $60,000 from the World Championships in Paris and another $90,000 dollars from her wins in the six Golden League meets ($15,000 per meet), giving her $1,190,000 from her participation in IAAF events alone
