Four months of high-octane action, 12 enthralling qualifying meetings, and 16 newly-crowned champions in Zurich last week. The 2019 IAAF Diamond League now boils down to the AG Memorial van Damme in Brussels, the second final in the series, which will see another 16 winners crowned on Thursday and Friday (5-6).
With the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 starting on 27 September, this year is the first in which the IAAF Diamond League has concluded ahead of a major global championships. It has slightly changed the dynamic of the season; whereas before the IAAF Diamond League finals have been an opportunity for athletes to either gain revenge on their rivals or prove their form following a major championships, this year athletes are using Zurich and Brussels to provide a glimpse of what to expect in Doha in three weeks’ time.
Not forgetting, of course, that each winner in Zurich and Brussels will pocket $50,000, a Diamond trophy and a wild card entry for the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019. It is little wonder, then, that the fields for the second IAAF Diamond League final in Brussels are so loaded.
Eight men with PBs of 22.00m or farther – exactly one quarter of history’s 22-metre club – will line up for the competition and it would be a surprise if that barrier isn’t bettered by at least a couple of the athletes in the field.
