    Quite a prize package for everyone.

    The DL Championship.
    The trophy.
    The money.
    The ticket to Eugene.

    • Depending on the construction of the HJ apron, will they get a bounce?

        Still needs to race Hassan who I think is hard to beat in the 5000m. Have Hassan and Niyonsaba ever raced?

            • Can’t find DL standings on the site anywhere. Am I to assume that standings are irrelevant since the winner takes the seasons’ prize? Didn’t used to be that way, did it? Changed in the past few years?

              Also, announcer said Crouser doesn’t get the free pass for Worlds for next year as DL winner since Kovacs has it as defending champ. Is that accurate? I remember discussion that USATF would have to decide. Didn’t we have that issue with Kori Carter or something a few champs ago?

                I think she'll beat Hassan next year. She's relatively new to these distances and has come on leaps and bounds.
                Apparently Ignorance is bliss

                  2017 was the first year where the diamond league final winner was crowned the overall winner

                  Since 2012 (when IAAF granted the DL winner a wild card) USATF's rule has been if the reigning world champ is American, they take precedent with the wild card. See post #57 of this topic linking to the USATF rule from 2019: https://forum.trackandfieldnews.com/...15#post1722715

                    I got "lapped"...in my very 1st marathon!
                    It was the 1973 AAU race in Burlingame and San Mateo.
                    It had a 5 mile loop through residential areas, with the final 1.2 offshoot that ended on the San Mateo HS track!
                    Doug Schmenk (sp?) won it in 2:15:21.
                    I had stomach problems--had to make a porta-potty stops on laps 2, 3, and 4--and ran m,y slowest ever time of 4:02.45!
                    I finished 263rd out of 311 finishers!

                    The leaders lapped me TWICE!!
                    LOL
