Indoor Series Standings
During USA Track & Field's 2005 Indoor Visa Championship Series, American athletes will compete not only for more than $1 million in prize and promotional money, they will also be racing toward a combined $100,000 jackpot and other prizes for the Visa Championship.
The male and female athlete with the top overall performance in the 2005 Visa Championship Series will be named Visa Champion, each receiving $25,000 and a trip to a premier Visa-sponsored event.
Crowning the Visa Champion
The top American male finisher and top American female finisher in each event of the Visa Championship Series, including the USA Indoor Track & Field Championships, will have their performances assigned a point total based on the IAAF Scoring Tables of Indoor Athletics. The athlete whose performance has the highest point total at the end of the Visa Championship Series will be named the Visa Champion.
Although the top performance can come at any of the Visa Championship Series meets, an athlete must compete at the USA Indoor Championships in order to be named Visa Champion. Athletes competing on the high school or college level are not eligible.
Ties will be broken by determining which tied athlete had the best mark at the USA Indoor Track & Field Championships, based on the IAAF Scoring Tables of Indoor Athletics. If a tie still exists, it will be broken by a coin toss.
