The Diamond League begins the season in Doha with ten athletic stars, none Russian.
In a year in which the World Championship (Eugene, 15-24 July) and the European Championship (Mnich, August 15-21) coincide, Doha today takes the wraps off the Diamond League. Thirteen meetings will end in Zarich in early September. Those in Shanghai and Shenzhen have been canceled due to the health situation in China. Ten athletics stars, none Russian, represent an entire sky in them:
Lamont Marcel Jacobs (Italy). His Olympic gold in the 100 meters, in addition to the gold achieved in the 4×100 relay, has propelled him to the top of the pace at which he aspires to return. Christian Coleman (USA), who returns to the circuit after serving an 18-month clearance to abandon multiple anti-doping controls. He made his outdoor debut with a comfortable 10.09.
jacob ingebrigtsen (Norway). Olympic champion of 1,500. For some years, since his teens (age 21 today), Europeans, whites and victors substituted for African dominance in long middle distance (1,500), short distance (5,000) and even cross country. An immense and emerging talent.
Kirsten Warholm (Norway). His two world records in the 400m hurdles in 2021, the last at the Tokyo Games (45.94), saw him named 2021 Athlete of the Year. existence of Rai Benjamin (USA) and Alison Dos Santos Contributes to enriching the test, turning into one of the most attractive of the program.
armand duplantis (Sweden). Olympic champion and world pole vault record holder. His record (6.20), set in March at the Belgrade Indoor Championships, crossed an unimaginable limit if he hadn’t been on the track. At 22 years old, there are still more specific people waiting to cross over to her.
ryan krauser (Use). A charming, blond and bearded colossus of two meters and 150 kg with a “cowboy” hat. Double Olympic champion and shot put world record holder (23.37). His amazing consistency with shots beyond 23m makes him virtually unbeatable.
mohammed katiri (Spain). In 2021 he rose to stardom with the highest international level scores, breaking the Spanish records of 1,500, 3,000 and 5,000. Out of shape, he did not confirm his quality at the Tokyo Games (eighth out of 5,000). But his 24 years keep a bright future open.
Shelley-Ann Fraser-Price (Jamaica). The longest name of the “shortest” runner (officially 1.60). Multiple world champion, Olympic gold in 100 meters in Peking’2008 and London’2012, and bronze in Rio’2016, she bowed only in Tokyo in front of her compatriots Elaine Thompson-Herrah, At the age of 35, he has achieved his personal record: 10.67.
sifan hasan (Netherlands). The world record holder in the mile, an outstanding specialist in middle and long distances, tried to win the 1,500, 5,000 and 10,000 in Tokyo. Typical of an exaggerated ambition, a crazy aspiration. He almost made it. He was crowned in the last two Tests and was silver in the first.
Sydney McLaughlin (Use). Early in its purest form. At the age of 16, he was a semifinalist in the 400m hurdles at the Rio Games. In Tokyo, she set a new world record with gold (51.46), which she herself had set at the Olympic “trials” (51.90). Established in the provisional, the brand continues to vibrate.
ulimar lal (Venezuela). Total Triple Jump Dominator. No other expert comes close. The Olympic title allowed him to break the old world record of 15.67 m. Inessa Kravets (15.50). In March of this year, at the “indoor” World Cup in Belgrade, he beat them 15.74. It reaches 16 meters, it is not utopian, but who would have guessed it, it is realistic.
