  • 2003 Prize Money

    Sacramento Bee, 22-February-2004

    Follow the money

    U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin and Mozambique middle-distance runner Maria Mutola head the second annual prize money survey conducted by the Track Profile News Service.Gatlin topped the men's list in 2003 with $602,205, $500,000 coming at the Moscow Challenge, followed by Morocco middle-distance runner Hicham El Guerrouj ($279,841), Swedish triple jumper Christian Olsson ($254,304), Great Britain sprinter Dwain Chambers ($234,260) and U.S. hurdler Allen Johnson ($226,420).

    Mutola's $1,330,624 was well ahead of South African high jumper Hestrie Cloete ($323,560), Russian pole vaulter Svetlana Feofanova ($318,884), and U.S. sprinters Kelli White ($304,856) and Chryste Gaines ($210,392).

    The numbers don't include appearance fees and performance bonuses. Athletes with positive drug tests likely will forfeit much of their income.
