New IAAF Website, fantasy league

The IAAF just unveiled a revamped website. The content is still basically the same, with one notable exception: they have a "fantasy league". Really, it's just a prediction contest for the World Championships. It does, however, have the option of creating private leagues, as you might at Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. And some nice prizes:
The overall winner of IAAF Fantasy Athletics will receive a trip for two to a World Athletics Tour event near them, including airfares and accommodation. In addition, the player who achieves the highest score each individual competition day will receive an Osaka 2007 t-shirt signed by one of the elite athletes competing in Osaka.
They can just save themselves some trouble and send those things to me right now.
