2019 Diamond League Diary: Why we love the 2019 Monaco Herculis DL (July 12, 2019)


We began podcasts a few years ago, and the response has been tremendous.

The deep thoughts series, on why we love Diamond League events. Monaco is always alot of fun. Most years, I would take the train down from Paris to Nice. Then, if can avoid getting pick pocketed (did happen), I take the bus to Menton. In Menton, I stay in a little hotel, Le Princesse et Richmond, just across from the beach. I stay for a week in Menton for cost of 2 nights in Monaco. The bus to Monaco, 2 Euros, is accessible and as I am only one in suit, rest of bus is families during the day, and rather colorful crowd on the 3am bus post meet.

Well, I have digressed. Some fine performances in Monaco. Big distance events, and pole vault, well, Piotr Lisek reminded all that he is not to be under estimated. Nijel Amos took the 800m out to another world.

Enjoy the podcast. Thanks to Mike Deering, The Shoe Addicts who keeps the podcast a) on time, b) focused, c) fun!
