The media circus and social media circus directed around Sha'Carri Richardson between the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials, the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, and the 2021 Nike Pre Classic has been fascinating.

Sam Fariss wrote this piece on the performance of Sha'Carri Richardson at the Nike Pre Classic. She finished last. It is a humbling experience to finish last (this writer should know).

We wish Sha'Carri Richardson a warm return to her career.

The Müller Anniversary Games was cancelled in 2020, it is back in 2021. The Müller Anniversary Games is one of my favorite events in the Diamond League. I hope to get back to it in 2021.

This is Stuart Weir's piece on the planned 2021 Diamond League, and it has an view about the paradigm changing disappearance of one Diamond League meeting in the UK and the disappearance of a day in the Anniversary Games, plus the move to mid week from the weekend.

Big changes in UK.

The Nike Pre Classic will be back in Eugene in 2021, god willing....

The Doha Diamond League meet is an example of how insane this year, 2020. In the decade that the Doha Diamond League has been held at the beginning of the outdoor athletic season. In 2020, Doha ending the 2020 Wanda Diamond League season. This is the complete results.

In this column, Stuart Weir writes about the mixed performances by Brits in Doha. In the above tweet, you can see Elliot Giles en route to his PB 1:44.56.

In the tweet below, you can see Laura Weightman, who took seventh in the 3000m in 8:26.31 (she's in center), just .25 behind her PB.

Faith Kipyegon has had a good season in 2020. Today, the 800m speed that she displayed showed that she could double in 2021, and Stuart Weir thinks that she could be the 2020 athlete of the year?
