Athletics Super League

LONDON -- The new Super League comprising around 10 elite athletics meetings will be launched by the International Amateur Athletic Federation, or IAAF, next year.

Sources close to the meeting organizers said Thursday details would be announced by IAAF president Primo Nebiolo at a news conference in Monaco on Friday.

The IAAF confirmed this month that it planned a new series but did not say when it would start.

Oslo, Zurich, Brussels and Berlin, the Golden Four series that put up 20 one-kilogram gold bars as prizes, will be included among the venues.
