Every lane is set to be shining with medallists in the 110m hurdles on 31 May at the Prefontaine Classic, the third leg of the 2014 IAAF Diamond League.
The IAAF Ambassadors Press Conference, marking 30 years of the IAAF World Championships, featured two IAAF Ambassadors, Great Britain’s 1983 1500m champion Steve Cram and Russia’s 1996 Olympic Games 800m and 1500m champion Svetlana Masterkova. US hurdler Ryan Wilson, who won the 110m Hurdles silver medal on Monday, was also there as a guest on Friday (15).
If the opening round heats had a distinctly American odour, the fragrance was unmistakably Russian after the semi-finals as Sergey Shubenkov led the qualifiers for the final later tonight.
When an event is scheduled last in a competition programme, you know it’s going to be a good one.
Tyson Gay was concerned how he would respond in the 200m (23) on Sunday after winning the 100m in 9.75 two days earlier in the USA Championships at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.
