IAAF, adidas launch daily best performer promotion

first_img Each day’s winning athletes will then form a final shortlist – the ‘champion of champions’ shortlist – and voting will take place from Monday, August 31 to Friday, September 4. One athlete will emerge as the overall winner and get the accolade of being the Best Performer of the IAAF World Championships, Beijing 2015, presented by adidas. The overall winner will be announced on September 4, and will be presented with a special Golden Shoe Award at the IAAF Gala in November. ‘CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS’ In conjunction with official IAAF partner, adidas, the IAAF, in a release yesterday, has asked athletics fans around the world to choose the best performers of each day of the IAAF World Championships, Beijing 2015. After each evening session of the championships, which runs from August 22-30, a panel of experts will put together a shortlist of three athletes deemed to be among the day’s best performers. The IAAF will then announce the names of the three athletes – who need not be winners or even medallists, but, nevertheless, are competitors who grab the imagination of the experts – through the IAAF website and social media, opening it up to the public to vote via www.iaaf.org and decide a winner. The athlete with the most votes will be announced before the following day’s evening session (except for the winner of the final day, which will be announced the following morning, the day after the championships).last_img read more
