[color=yellow]The IAAF Fantasy league starts this week with the Shanghai Diamond League. You need to select 8 athletes - 4 men and 4 women.

IAAF Fantasy Athletics

IAAF Fantasy Athletics gives you the opportunity to experience the power, intensity and passion of world-class athletics.

Step into the spikes of your eight-strong team of elite athletes, which you must assemble using your knowledge of the sport and ability to predict future results, and feel the adrenalin rush of competing at some of the world’s leading competitions in the IAAF Samsung Diamond League.

If you want to stand a chance of winning some fantastic prizes from the IAAF, you will need to stay on your toes and ensure your athletes are competing in the IAAF Samsung Diamond League – the only meetings at which your team can win points.

Putting Together Your Team

Your team must be composed of four male and four female athletes from the list of possible.

You must select a captain for your team who will score double points.

Your athletes will score points based on what they do in real-life IAAF Samsung Diamond League meetings. The team that gains the most points over the course of the 14-meeting season will top the overall standings.

Athletes will win 10 points every time they place first in an event final.
They will receive 7 points for finishing as runner-up, 5 points for placing third,
3 points for fourth,
2 points for fifth
each athlete who finishes an event will receive 1 point.

Athletes who do not start or finish their event will receive 0 points but athletes who are disqualified with be penalized with a -5 score.

The team captain will earn double points, which means he or she will receive 20 points for winning an event, 14 points for coming second, 10 points for coming third and so on.

Athletes who achieve a Meeting Record will also receive double points in that event while anyone who sets a new World Record will earn triple points in that event.

It is possible to make unlimited substitutions to your team up to two hours before the scheduled start of any IAAF Samsung Diamond League meeting.

Set up Your Own League
A great feature of IAAF Fantasy Athletics is the ability to set up your own league, which you can then invite family and friends to join.

That way, you can battle it out with those nearest and dearest to you and get a real sense of rivalry going.

You’ll find full details of how to set up your league on the Leagues page.

Who Will You Chose?
Selecting your eight athletes might prove a tricky task.

That’s why we’ve put together some expert guidance to help you make light of the process.

For starters, take a look at the 2011 IAAF Samsung Diamond League schedule.

Then, browse through the IAAF Tips section, which contains a detailed review of the inaugural 2010 IAAF Samsung Diamond League, spotlighting the winners of the key events at meetings across the globe.

Also, we have asked famous athletics personalities - like former World champion and Olympic silver medallist Colin Jackson – to pick their team of eight superstars.

Once you’ve checked the schedule and tips you can get down to selecting your team.

Good luck!



Massive controversy in the IAAF Fantasy Athletic League this week with the ladder being turned on its head because of Discus thrower Sandra Perkovic's failed drug test and any points earned by her from Shangahi & Rome being removed from the game. Perkovic broke the meet record in Shanghai and many people had her as captain earning 40 points. Having lost the points, the run away leader of the last few week, 'Flumpy' dropped to 8th.

It's opened it up quite a bit with 4 people currently tied on 793 points.

Reading some of the aths forums there's a few people pissed off losing up to 60 points because of Perkovic's DQ.

Not sure we've heard the end of it...

Below are the points after Monaco; the Stockholm DL meet from Friday 29th July have not been added. Should be some interesting changes. After Stockholm there are three meets to go - London, Brussels & Zurich.

I can't complain - going from 30th to 19th as I didn't have Perkovic in my Shanghai team.

Stockholm and London points now added.

London results turned it on its ear with five meet records. You basically had to get at least 3 of them to be in the mix.

Interestingly about 60% of the top 100 had women's 3k steeplechase champion, Milcah Cheywa as captain, anticipating a meet record. The meet record was only 9-22.4 and the undefeated Chewya has run under 9-20 multiple times this year including a best of 9-12. Unfortunately (for us who had her as captain!) no one was prepared to push her, sitting behind Chewya who led throughout and she bowled around until the last 350m where she finally took off only to fail the break the meet record with a time of 9-22.8!

Those who appointed Rudisha (M 800m) or Spencer (W 400H) as captain picked up the bonus 20 points for they both smashed the meet record.

The two leaders both had Rudisha as captain, picking up over 130 points.

Thanks to a good score of 112 points from London, I've climbed up to 8th overall, but with two meets to go at Zurich & Brussels, time has probably run out to catch the leaders.

The leader - Simanovic (nickname Deuce) is a pretty smart operator waiting until the last moment to submit his team and always plays the percentages. Hard to see him getting beat from here.

4IAAF Fantasy League starts this week. Empty fantasy world champs edition Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:00 pm



although they told, it will come, seems no championship fantasy this time... sad Sad ... or does anyone know better?



I've dropped a spot or two after missing the cut off time for changing the team last night. I hastily picked 8 athletes on Wednesday morning and included Kipruto in the 3k steeplechase. I checked the start list yesterday and saw he was out but decided to wait until I'd checked all the start lists before making any changes.

Normally one has up to 2.00pm UTC time on the day of the meet (10.30pm Adelaide time) to make changes, but they must have changed it for this meet because when I logged on last night at 8.00pm, it had already locked down. Reading the T&F News Forum, they apparently only changed the cut off time some time in the last 48 hours before the meet.

I was stuck with Kipruto and got 0 for him. However I did have everyone of my other 7 athletes (S Pearson capt, V Cheryot, V Adams, M Savinova, D Robles, K James & R Harting) win so I came out of it not as bad I could have with 90 points. Any score around the 90 to 100 seems to be OK.

Cheryot ran a meeting record in the 5000m giving those who picked her as captain, 40 points.

Noticed quite a few went for Mitchell Watt, who unfortunately could only finish 7th due to carrying an injury.

Spotakava & Abukamova getting beat by Obergfoll in the women's javelin was handy!

One meet to go - Brussels on 16th September.

6IAAF Fantasy League starts this week. Empty ... Mon Sep 12, 2011 9:15 pm



because of wrong stats in wikipedia (iaaf hadn't added the stats to startlists by that moment) i chose Pearson over Obergföll and man was i happy about that...



Failing to get in on time to change non-starter Kipruto to Kemboi (2011 world champion & logical favourite) who won easily, cost me 10 points and I'd now be 6th instead of 9th. Oh well, too bad, how sad!

Disastrous final round in Brussels with only 84 points - slipping down to 12th. Was unlucky with Sally Pearson falling over in the hurdles but made a couple of bad calls - taking out Yohan Blake in the 200m (Meet Record & 20 points) & Imane Merga (1st - 5000m & 10 points) and replacing them with Kevin Borlee (2nd in the 400m - 7pts) and Lavillenie (2nd in the pole vault - 7 pts), late on Friday. Dix came into the field late and I thought he might beat Blake over the 200m!! Evil or Very Mad And should have just stuck with Zapirova in the women's 3k steeple instead of taking Cheywa as a back up. Overall 12th - after 13th in 2009. Thems the breaks.
