An excellent and relaxed job by Nathaneel Mitchell-Blake and Jenny Simpson a the 2018 IAAF Diamond League opening presser for the Doha DL meeting today! This is the entire presser (we will also post highlights) in the local shopping center just off the HQ hotel. It is a casual setting, but good interplay with some of the superstars of the sport. Special thanks to Matthew Quine, you know him from runjumpthrow.com. Matt is the IAAF Media Manager for the Diamond League.
Some big questions to be answered in Doha. How will Hellen Obiri and Jenny Simpson tangle? How fast is Caster Semenya, after her 4:00 1,500 meters in Gold Coast? Who is fast and furious in the sprints? And, who will win the battles over the women’s PV, Katerina Stefanidi, Sandi Morris, Katie Nageotte?
These and other exciting answers to your questions on May 4!
