TDK Golden League - Formula One of Athletics


1998, the IAAF created the IAAF Golden League, which was developed as a concept

to unify the elite individual Meetings held in Europe.

The TDK Golden League, comprising seven Meetings rich in athletics

tradition, will be held at the height of the athletics season. For competing

athletes, the concept is simple: win your TDK Golden League discipline at each

TDK Golden League Meeting for a share of the TDK Golden League Jackpot of 50

kilos of gold ingots.

The real,- BERLIN-MARATHON once again presents the TDK Golden League of the

IAAF. The TDK Golden League will consist of six meetings and offer a jackpot of

one million dollar. The Jackpot will be shared between those athletes who win

their individual events at every TDK Golden League meeting. To claim the

jackpot, athletes must also take part in the World Athletics Final in Monaco on

18/19 September.
