1 Samsung Diamond League trophy revealed on Tue Aug 17, 2010 8:57 pm



Samsung Diamond League Trophy unveiled in Stockholm.

As finals approach Diamond Trophy is unveiled - Samsung Diamond League

Zürich, Switzerland – With the first of two Samsung Diamond League finals to take place on Thursday (19) at the Weltklasse Zürich, 16 inaugural Diamond Race winners will be crowned at the conclusion of the action-packed programme at Letzigrund Stadium. One of the prizes for their season-long consistency and undisputed honour as the World No. 1, the Diamond Race Trophy is one of the most dazzling awards in the world of sport.

Designed exclusively by the Swiss firm Beyer Chronometrie AG for the Samsung Diamond League, the Diamond Race Trophy has a classic cup design topped with a large glass diamond with a traditional brilliant cut. Sitting on a black polished granite base, the 4.8 kilogram and 35 cm high Trophy features steel supports in the shape of a stadium track, perfectly fusing the sport of athletics with the diamond it carries.

The Trophy was designed by Carlo Mutschler, the Head Designer & Goldsmith at Beyer, a company founded in 1760 and currently the oldest watch and jewelry shop in Switzerland. A family-operated business for eight generations, Beyer owns and operates its own jewelry design atelier and a gold and silversmith workshop.

The first 16 winners will be honoured at a ceremony at Letzigrund stadium immediately following the action. The remaining 16 Diamond Race winners will be crowned at the Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, the final meeting of the inaugural Samsung Diamond League series, on Friday 24 August. In addition to the trophy, winners will also receive a $40,000 cash prize.

cash is important to be able to get some of the same stuff you put in.

other than that all the little prizes like a bottle of wine, 6pack of beer, vouchers and the like add to the experience.
