Ten Sports to telecast IAAF Golden League 2006 live on 25 August

MUMBAI: Ten Sports will showcase the IAAF Golden League 2006 live on Friday 25 August at 11:30 pm. The event is slated to take place at the 30th Memorial Van Damme in the Stade Roi Baudouin, Brussels, Belgium.

Following on from last Friday's meeting in Z?rich, the number of athletes in the hunt for the $1 million Jackpot has been reduced to four athletes who have a chance of six victories with two more still in line for a share of $500,000 jackpot for five victories, informs an official release.

Asafa Powell (100m), Jeremy Wariner (400m), Sanya Richards (400m) and Tirunesh Dibaba (5000m) all have four victories while Kenenisa Bekele (5000m) and Irving Saladino (Long Jump) both have three, going into Fridays meeting.

All eyes will again be on Powell who last weekend matched his 100m world record of 9.77secs and who is confident he can go faster by the end of the season. Powell said, "I'm just feeling very good. I knew it was something special, I just didn't know how fast it was."

In the men's 400m Wariner looks to be as dominant as Powell in the 100m. The Texan has been winning his races this season by over a second and this is against top quality fields.

Wariner's training partner Sanya Richards also has the perfect four victories to date in the women's equivalent but knows that this year's revelation, 22-year-old Bulgarian Vanya Stambolova, the recently-crowned European champion, will be looking to spoil the party, adds the release.

The final member of the quartet with four victories is Tirunesh Dibaba. The Ethiopian put in a dominant performance in Zurich last week but has compatriot Meseret Defar to contend with in Brussels and Defar recently beat on way to claiming the African title.
