Missed Stockholm? Re-live it here: Diamond League Video Round-Up

If you missed the Stockholm Diamond League you have something in common with scores of World Class athletes as most of them were also absent. With the Kenyan Trials and Worlds looming on the horizon, there was a feeling that tonight’s Diamond League would be a disappointment. It may not have given us any crazy fast times like Monaco but there were some interesting match-ups and some fantastic tactical racing.

Women’s 400m Hurdles
Hejnova was made to work all the way to the line by Petersen but held on to record yet another Diamond League victory.

Women’s 800m
European u23 Champion Renelle Lamote used her speed over the last 100m as she kicked away from Lynsey Sharp who led on the backstraight. Brenda Martinez looked flat and didn’t have her usual finish while plenty of athletes doing it the hard way, going out in 56/57 and returning in well outside 60 seconds.

Men’s 1500m
Souleiman may have been blown away in Monaco but tonight he showed he is still in good form and a threat to be reckoned with in Beijing. He ran 40.63 over the last 300m to blow the field away. Matthew Centrowitz had an off-day while Jakub Holusa ( who you may remember from AAI Games 2014) was 2nd in a new national record.

Balla reigned supreme in this one as he stormed away in the home stretch. Bad night for the Americans as Erik Sowinski paid for his ambition as he led with 200m to go with Leo Manzano falling off the face of the Earth while poor Mark Wieczorek taking a heavy fall just before the line.
