Operation Gold Grants

The 2013 Operation Gold qualifying event for USA Track & Field is the 2013 IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia (August 10-18, 2013). In the Olympic year, multiple Operation Gold Awards will be paid to qualifying athletes. In non-Olympic years, Operation Gold Awards are limited to one award per athlete in a program year. In non-Olympic years, athletes who qualify for more than one award automatically receive the higher award.
