Congratulations to Pauline Jelimo for winning the IAAF $1million Jackpot! And she is just a teenager, at that. She won the IAAF Golden League by winning the 800m in a record 1 minute, 56.41 seconds. To win this prize one has to compete AND win all six stops in the tour, and then they have to show up to the World Athletics Final!
She has had a stellar year, having won a gold medal in the Beijing Olympics in the 800m. She is also considered to be one of the fastest women in the 800m today. Watch the video and see why.
Great job Pauline! You have made us so proud!
