Sixteen Diamond League women's season championships were decided in the final two meets, in Zurich and Brussels. Perhaps the most highly anticipated final came in the Zurich 5000 meters, between Tirunesh Dibaba and Meseret Defar, who didn't get to race each other in the World Championships. Defar won the 5000 in Moscow - while Dibaba took the 10,000 meters - and Defar also prevailed in Zurich to win the overall Diamond League title. Six women wrapped up overall season titles by winning in Zurich: Valerie Adams in the shot put; Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the 200; Zuzana Hejnova - who won all seven League meets this year - in the 400 hurdles; Silke Spiegelburg in the pole vault; Shara Proctor in the long jump; and Eunice Sum in the 800. Maria Abakumova won the javelin throw in Zurich but Christina Obergfoll took the overall title.
In Brussels, Fraser-Pryce won the 100 to become the first competitor to win the 100-200 Diamond Race double. Amantle Montsho placed second in the Brussels 400, but won season championship. Milcah Chemos won the steeplechase event to become the first woman to capture four consecutive Diamond League championships. Other Brussels winners who also clinched season championships included Svetlana Shkolina in the high jump; Sandra Perkovic in the discus; Dawn Harper-Nelson in the 100 hurdles; Abeba Aregawi in the 1500 meters; and Caterine Ibarguen in the triple jump.
