With setting of world records at a premium in its flagship event, world athletics body IAAF announced a special bonus of $100,000 for breaking old marks in the upcoming 15th edition of the world championships to be held at Beijing from August 22-30. “Setting a world record at an IAAF world championships is an extremely rare feat. In fact, in the 32-year history of the event, barely 20 world records have been posted making the accomplishment one well worth rewarding,“ the IAAF said in a media release. “The performance must be an improvement on the existing IAAF world record. Performances which equal the existing IAAF world record will not be eligible for award,“ the release clarified.
