The Nike Pre Classic will be back in Eugene, Oregon!

I did not see this release until today, but I knew it had to be up!

I love the Nike Prefontaine Classic. In the 1980s and 1990s, the Nike Prefontaine Classic saved elite athletics in the U.S. It was how I experienced elite athletics. I love sitting in the stands and enjoying the meet, the athletes, and the competitions.

I look forward to the 2021 event. I hope to be there.

This is the updated list on the 2021 Wanda Diamond League. Glad to see that 32 events are back on the schedule. That is a good thing (as Martha Stewart would say).

I love Athletissima. I love going to Lausanne. The meet is exceptional. The crowd is amazing. This meet is held in a stadium with exciting views, and I have seen a pole vault duel with Sam Kendricks, Piotr Lisek and Mondo Duplantis, and on the other end I saw Mariya Lasitskene do masterful jumps.

I am hoping to see the 2021 Athletissima in Lausanne. Check the out the release below!

The Bauhaus Galan 2020 meeting was an exciting meeting. This release is about the 2021 date....

The 400m hurdles may be the most sadistic event in the sport. The 400 meters is an event that challenges all. Add ten hurdles to the 400 meters,

and one has an amazing challenge.

In Stockholm, this past summer, Karston Warholm, almost 'touched the sun', like the Greek mythological character, Icarus. Touching the last hurdle, Karsten Warholm just missed the world record held by Kevin Young since 1992, running a spirited 46.87. An almost perfect race, Karston Warholm had almost run a perfect race, and in that action, showed us that world records, while made to be broken, come in their own time.

Stewart McSweyn won the 1,500m at the Doha Diamond League in 3:30.51. He won big time and with his 3000m Australian record at 7:28.02 (17 Sept 2020), and his Australian record at 10,000m, 27:23.80, set 14 December 2020, Stewart now has 3 Australian records.

Doha Diamond League was a fitting end to a season held in a pandemic.

This is how EME news highlighted the meet.

The women's 3000m was an amazing race. Hellen Obiri ran an amazing race and pushed seven in the event to PBs! Justin Lagat did this piece on the 2020 Doha Diamond League, the final event of the season.
