50 days until the start of the new season

In a few weeks the IAAF Diamond League will enter its tenth season. Once again, Weltklasse Zürich will host the Final of the most important athletics series. In 16 final disciplines, the world elite of athletics fights for victory, fame and the coveted Diamond Trophy.

Doha will be the first stop of the Diamond League Tour on 3rd May - that's where the World Championships will take place at the end of September. On 5th July, the track and field family will make it's first stop in Switzerland. Then the Athletissima will take place in Lausanne on the #RoadToTheFinal. At a total of 12 meetings, each with a different range of disciplines, the athletes will have to collect points again this year in order to qualify for the final in Zurich or Brussels. In the fight for the Diamond Trophy, however, the points collected are not relevant. Only the victory in the final decides - excitement guaranteed!
