Looks like a mistake with K. Bekele winning the DL 5000 in 2010. Should be Merga.

And to expand the trivia question, which five athletes have won three DL titles in the last three years?

Just add Carmelita Jeter to the 4. She has won the 100 twice and 200m once

Also interesting that the previous "stars" of the Golden Leauge and 3 of the major headlines before the Diamond League began SRR, Isinbaeva, and Bekele have all yet to win a Diamond Leauge title.

The "complete" list of all-time DL points winners should be corrected to identify a fifth three-time winner. The men's Steeple list should read: Paul Koech, Koech, Koech.

that is correct: original listed Ezekiel Kemboi won the final DL race in ’10, but not the overall.

But only Renaud Lavillenie won Olympic Gold.

Would the other 4 trade their 3 DLs for a single Olympic Gold?

Another notable athlete who hasn't won a DL title is Sally Pearson.

I'm pretty sure that Kaliese Spencer would trade any one or possibly all three of her DL titles for a medal of any colour. Finishing fourth in each of the past three global championships can't be sitting well with her.

I wouldnt say sally is as notable Sanya, Isi and Bekele. Sally just took off last year.

She hasnt been a dominating the circuit for almost a decade.
