The Doha Diamond League which starts the 2022 series is back at the old Qatar Sports stadium. The Khalifa stadium which hosted the 2019 World Championship, is now on Soccer World Cup duty. In all honestly, Qatar Sports is more suited to the event as the normal Doha DL attendance would rattle around in the Khalifa.

The highlight of the press conference was when Gianmarco Tamberi promised that he and Barshim would jump until there was a winner this time! Tamberi also talked about his dunk in the NBA All-Star Celebrity basketball game, which he said was as exciting a moment as the Olympic gold medal. His only disappointment, he confided, that he was still waiting for the Boston Celtics to send him a contract offer.
