The Memorial Van Damme tops the athletics events of the year. In a yearly ranking by the International Athletics Federation (IAAF) Brussels precedes Athens and Rome.
A fantastic 31st edition of the Memorial Van Damme, with a world record for Meseret Defar at the 2 mijl as its climax. Kenenisa Bekele (10.000m) Sanya Richards (400m) and Paul Kipsiele Koech (3000m steeple) delivered a world year best each. Asafa Powell won the 100m and Kim Gevaert heated up the whole stadium with her victory at the 200m.
