Jelimo eyes the big Jackpot


After an impressive display in front of a 26,000 capacity crowd at the IAAF's Weltklasse Zürich, Golden League meeting at the Zurich's Letzigrund stadium, Kenyan sensational teenager Pamela Jelimo now has only one more hurdle between her and a share of the Golden League $1 Million Jackpot.

The 18-year-old Olympic 800m champion has remained undefeated over the distance so far this season and her latest improvement of both the senior African and World Junior 800m records jointly for the fourth time this season (the junior mark for a fifth) with a 1:54.01 run in Zurich, is simply phenomenal.

When she lines up next Friday 5 Sept at the last meet of the series in Brussels, only herself and Croatian High jumper Blanka Vlasic (the only other athlete to have successfully won five out of the six stages) can stop her from claiming at least a share of the $1 Million Jackpot.

However, watching Vlasic tiredly climbing over 2.01m in Zurich, who's going to bet on Jelimo not taking the whole lot.
