For example, the 3000 Steeple in Monaco in a week. How much will someone like Jager get for winning? Does his sponsor and coach get a cut?
Do the women get the same prize fund?
Just curious. Anybody know?
Each athlete crowned IAAF Diamond League Champion wins USD 50,000 worth of prize money at the end of the season. With two finals, each staging 16 Diamond Disciplines, the total prize money awarded amounts to USD 1,600,000.
At each of the Qualification Meetings, USD 30,000 of prize money will be awarded per discipline. Each Qualification Meeting will stage either 14 or 13 Diamond Disciplines, meaning the total prize money awarded at a single Qualification Meeting will total either USD 420,000 or USD 390'000.
