IAAF gives donation to Japan quake zone

The IAAF has donated $250,000 to the Japanese federation to “assist the rebuilding of their shattered society” following the devastating March tsunami.

IAAF president Lamine Diack visited sponsors in Japan days after the tsunami hit on March 11 to show the IAAF’s sympathy and support, the body said. He “reinforced that commitment” when presenting the gift to Yohei Kono, president of the Japan Association of Athletics Federations and Japan’s IAAF council member Katsuyuki Tanaka.

“It will help establish athletics competitions in the areas of Japan which have most suffered from the tragedy,” said Kono.
