The ninth meeting of the 2018 Diamond League was held in Rabat, Morroco, on Friday, July 13. The Meeting Internaitonal Mohammed VI D'Athletisme de Rabat had some awesome races.

There was a tremendous Men's 100 meters, with Christian Coleman, Ronnie Baker, Noah Lyles and Mike Rodgers. The men's 1,5000 meters was very deep, with tenth place at 3:35.15. Caster Semenya's 1000 meter run was a screamer, and a NR. Shaunae Miller-Uibo won the 200 meters, taking the win from Dina Asher-Smith, who is racing with a new found confidence.

Here's the highlight video and what follows are the complete results. Each Diamond League meet has been had some fantastic rivalries.

Here's the final article form Stuart Weir on the 2018 Athletics World Cup. Stuart Weir wrote this piece on his thoughts on the format and possible success in the future of the event.

Sean McGorty is an NCAA Champion. The former Stanford star has now ventured to Europe, now as a pro athlete, and is beginning his racing season as a professional athlete. He has done it with a win, a nice 3:36.61 for the 1,500 meters. Jeff Benjamin, Staten Island senior writer for RunBlogRun, reached out to Sean and the young Mr. McGorty responded right away. We thank Sean for his quick response, his racing and wish him a successful series of races, and lots of fun traveling around Europe.


This is Stuart Weir's first column on Monday for Day two of the Athletics World Cup (Sunday, July 15, 2018). In this column, he praises the fast women who ran in London.

We think this interview by Athletics Weekly with Beth Dobbins, new GBR and Scottish NR holder at 200 meters, on her medal at Athletics World Cup, puts this all into perspective:

A tremendous 5000 meters happened in Rabat on Friday, July 13. And, over the last 200 meters, it came down to Hellen Obiri, World Champion, and Sifan Hassan, newly healthy, after a fast 1,500m in Paris (3:58.39), and now a new European record of 14:22.34, behind the 14:21.75 of Hellen Obiri. Here's the Diamond League video on the stages of the race:
