From November 23 to 25 I was guest at the IAAF Awards 2017. Besides award ceremoies for the female and male athlete of the year we had some meetings to talk about future issues in our sport. Not all the info is edited yet to be presented to public. Alongside the 2018 competition schedule pointing the way issues where discussed. From my point of view, important themes around AntiDoping and the long term orientation of track and field where discussed.
We want to be part of top four sports in the world
Sebastian Coe, president of the IAAF stated.
Unofficial award for the SocialMedia post of the year
That creativity is usually awarded is known in general. This season me and my national team colleques produced a short clip called #NEWUNLIMITED. The idea was to create more attention for our sport, that we were able to underline with great results later on. In Monaco the clip was presented as a clip of the year. With more than 4.5 million viewers in SocialMedia, TV and Online channels we are very satisfied. See the clip here:
