The Diamond League will conclude on September 17, 2023, with the final taking place in Hayward Stadium, Eugene, Oregon (United States).

Highlights from the Diamond League Paris 2023

India’s Murali Sreeshankar registered an impressive 8.09m attempt to finish third in the men’s long jump event at the Paris Diamond League 2023 athletics in France. Greece’s Olympic champion, Miltiadis Tentoglou took the gold in Paris with 8.13 m while Switzerland’s Simon Ehammer, last year’s World’s bronze medallist came second with 8.11 m. In the men’s 100 m sprint, Noah Lyles dashed all hopes of Ferdinand Omanyala from Kenya to win the gold medal. The Kenyan was 0.01 seconds slower than the American. Grant Holloway (USA), the silver medalist in Rabat came back strongly in Prais to finish first in the event.

In the women’s 400 m field, Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone has put on an alert that she’s here to challenge the best. At the Paris Diamond League athletics meet, the American 400m hurdles world record holder sent a loud message, starting fast out of the blocks in her first flat lap race in nearly five years. However, the Dominican Republic’s Marileidy Paulino, the world and Olympic silver medallist, caught McLaughlin-Levrone down the final bend before pulling ahead on the straight to take victory in a meeting record 49.12. In Women’s Shot Put, Portugal’s Auriol Dongmo (19.72 m) was able to wade off the threat from American Shot putters. Tournament favourite Chase Ealey came second with a throw of 19.43 m while her compatriot Maggie Ewen came third with 19.26 m.

Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon set a new women’s 1500m world record barely a week ago, stepped up again in the 5000m and took on the world record holder, Letesenbet Gidey. The two pulled away quickly before Kipyegon made her move with two laps to go, moving ahead of her Ethiopian rival. Another record which was set was by the Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen in men’s 2 miles which was last broken 26 years ago.
