Adel Mechaal, the only Spaniard at the premiere of the Diamond League

Adel Mechaal, indoor European runner-up in Istanbul in the wake of Jakob Ingebrigtsen will be the only Spaniard today (6:00 p.m., Movistar Deportes) in the Doha meeting, the initial appointment of the fifteen scheduled Diamond League 2023 that this season changes its final and it will be in Eugene (USA) in September). The 32-year-old Catalan will run the 3,000m against a host of brilliant stars such as the Ethiopians Lamecha Girma (indoor world record holder), Berihu Aregawi Selemon Barega, Soufiane El Bakkali (Olympic and world steeplechase champion) or Timothy Cheruiyot, 1,500m Olympic runner-up .

Mechaal’s idea is to attack his 7:35.28 (which dates from 2017), something more than possible considering that he has a time five seconds lower on the indoor track and that the hares must pass the first kilometer at 2:30 and 5 :00 the second so the rhythm of the favorites in Qatar will be demanding. Fast-paced 3,000 that can be the outstanding test of the day with the permission of the 1,500 female with Faith Kipyegon, the Kenyan who has already gone under four minutes 24 times and who will seek her 19th Diamond victory.

Other figures to follow will be Fred Kerley, 100 world champion, will be in the 200; Puerto Rican Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, 110 hurdles Olympic champion; Beatrice Chepkoech, world record holder in the 3,000 hurdles, Rai Benjamin, Olympic and world runner-up in the 400 hurdles; discus and javelin stars like Daniel Stahl, Kristjan Ceh or Neeraj Chopra; the local height idol Mutaz Essa Barshim; or a vibrant duel in the women’s 100 between the Jamaican Shericka Jackson and the American Sha’Carri Richardson.
