DOHA (QAT): World champion Ramil Guliyev headlines an excellent 200m field for the Doha Diamond League on 4 May. Guliyev will face opposition from world bronze medallist and recently crowned Commonwealth champion Jereem Richards from Trinidad & Tobago, reigning Diamond League winner Noah Lyles from the United States and triple Olympic medallist Andre de Grasse from Canada. Reigning world and Olympic 110m hurdles champion Omar McLeod from Jamaica (20.48 PB) makes his Diamond League debut at the distance.
RunBlogRun opines: One of the best things about the Doha DL are the amazing fields that open up the Diamond League season. This 200 meters should be a barn burner, with Jereem Richards, Noah Lyles and Andre De Grasse and Omar McLeod. Richards, Lyles and DeGrasse will give Guliyev a battle. Make sure you watch the Doha DL on May 4!
