The yearly IAAF Diamond league is here again. Between 15th of May and 11th September, 2015,  numerous athletic champions would be competing in various cities to take home the Diamond Trophy and thus seal their status as undisputed world number 1 and the most consistent performer of the year.


National, World and Olympic champions go head to head in 32 event disciplines as part of the Diamond Race. The IAAF Fantasy Diamond Race offers you as an athletics lover the chance to be part of this global series by demonstrating your own knowledge of the sport and ability to predict who will perform best at each of the meetings.
