    Re: Moscow Challenge

    Thanks for the tip. Any insights to the result? I was happy for Diane C. 3rd place in 800m.

    I'm interested if anyone knows about the results. It's already getting late in Moscow.

    Oh, OK, then - let's just get together all these African and Asian sprinters and give the 500 grand to the best of them. The HJ will be even better :-p

    A posted comment on the forthcoming Moscow meet, said that "The meet comes at a time when the season is supposed to be over."
    -----
    Please note that the current USA schedule, empasizing the Northern Hemisphere's spring season, is not the model everywhere else. Here are some examples of meets, expected to host 50 to 100 nations, yet to be held in 2003:

    Oct 11-15: All-Africa Games - Abuju, Nigeria
    Oct 26-29: Afro-Asian Games - Hyderabad, India
    Dec 05-13: SE Asian Games - Hanoi, Vietnam

    Further, the Southern Hemispshere spring begins soon and there will be considerable competition until next March in such countries as Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

    The half-million dollar figure was quoted in TFN back in the spring, as I recall, as partof a big Monty-Mo showdown. With neither of them in the picture (even if they're running), could they really still be offering that kind of money? Seems hard to believe.

    This meet will be interesting if for no other reason than to see what some hefty monetary prizes can due for performance. I assume they have tried to tie some money to marks instead of just places? Otherwise we're gonna get some pretty lackluster results.

    Re: Moscow Challenge

    I checked, and the prize money for the winner of the men's 100 is a cool half-million. Considerably less for other events.

    Re: Moscow Challenge

    Wish I could find the original release which had some prize money figures, but I know there's at least $100K for the winner of the men's 100, perhaps more. Other events have less, but still quite a bit. I believe the men's 800 has $50K to the winner, since Bungei said after not being named to the Kenyan team that "Moscow will be my Worlds."

    Re: Moscow Challenge

    If big money equalled great athletics, the Toronto 150 meters would have been the greatest race of all time.
    The meet comes at a time when the season is supposed to be over. Even with major stars competing, it will just be a bunch of tired guys running on their last legs. The weather will likely be crap as well at this time of the year in Moscow. Totally pointless.
