Live stream of Doha press conference to launch 2016 IAAF Diamond League

The 2016 IAAF Diamond League gets underway this week with Doha once again playing host to the first meeting in the series on Friday (6).

The second IAAF Diamond League meeting of 2016 will be held just one week later in Shanghai and then Rabat will stage the newest addition to the circuit later this month. The series will then continue throughout the year with the remaining fixtures divided between the USA and various European cities.

This year, press conferences from every IAAF Diamond League meeting – featuring a selection of the top athletes set to compete – will be streamed live on the IAAF Diamond League website the day before each competition.

Doha press conference
5 May 11:30 local time (GMT +3)

IAAF President Sebastian Coe and Asian Athletics President Dahlan Al Hamad will be joined by world 200m champion Dafne Schippers, world and Olympic triple jump champion Christian Taylor, two-time Olympic 200m champion Veronica Campbell-Brown and Asian 100m and 200m record-holder Femi Ogunode.

The stream will begin a few minutes before the start time of each conference.
