At the upcoming world championship organizers decided to surprise the viewers with new approaches in translation. For example, for the first time used the technology of “Block Cam” which will allow you to see the faces of the runners for a moment before they hear the starting shot, and to feel their power in the pads. Will also feature improved start video system, videoamerican for shot put and a new led scoreboard for the pit with sand, which will give viewers even more information.
Meanwhile, the international athletics Federation (IAAF) announced the amount of prize money won by the participants of the finals in their disciplines. So, for the gold, the athlete will get 60 thousand dollars, silver — 30, bronze — 20. The winners of the relay will receive the “gold” 80 thousand on the team, 40 thousand for “silver” and 20 thousand for “bronze”.
