Some of the biggest names in the sport have cemented their legendary status by adding to their career medal haul at the World Athletics Championships Doha 2019.
'Souvenir', a musical collaboration between Olympic pole vault silver medallist Sandi Morris, world 200m champion Noah Lyles and the Swiss pop band Baba Shrimps, was named a Xaver Silver Award winner, the top annual Swiss prize for excellence in live communication, at a ceremony in Zurich on 1 October.
When world 200m champion Noah Lyles heard the news yesterday that the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games would be postponed, his reaction was similar to that of countless other athletes: relief.
Noah Lyles earned the first of what will surely be a sequence of global sprint crowns here tonight as he won the world 200m title with efficiency rather than flamboyance in a time of 19.83.
It may not have been one of his most competitive IAAF Diamond League showdowns with arch-rival Will Claye, but Christian Taylor’s triple victory at the AG Memorial Van Damme in Brussels on Friday (6) was a memorable one for many other reasons.
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).
Noah Lyles is heading towards the IAAF Diamond League final, and the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 beyond, at warp speed.
With one month to go until the Meeting de Paris, the line-up for the IAAF Diamond League meeting on 24 August is taking shape.
Weltklasse organisers arranged for Olympic pole vault silver medallist Sandi Morris and two-time Diamond League 200m champion Noah Lyles to team up with Swiss band Baba Shrimps to record a track ahead of the IAAF Diamond League finals in two months’ time.
