• Diamond League introduces new scoring system for 2016 season

Posted by:

The organizers of the IAAF Diamond League series have changed the scoring format.


Different from previous years this  when only top three places would score in this year's format top six finishers in each meet will get points. 

1st place: 10 DR points
2nd place: 6 DR points
3rd place: 4 DR points
4th place: 3 DR points
5th place: 2 DR points
6th place: 1 DR point

Points will be doubled at the Diamond League finals, in Zürich and in Brussels. 

Such system by allowing more athletes to engage in the battle for the Diamond Trophy and cash prizes will make the competition more exciting and more competetive.
