Defending champion Neeraj Chopra will be India’s sole representative in the competition.
With a journey that encompassed 13 meetings from May to September, the Wanda Diamond League is now poised to declare its 2023 champions during the highly anticipated Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon. The Diamond League 2023 Final will be held on September 16-17.
These two action-packed days are set to host a grand total of 32 finals that will offer athletes the exciting prospect of vying for Diamond trophies and substantial cash prizes that are as high as $30,000. September 16 will witness the first 15 finals while September 17 will showcase the remaining 17 with 14 of them featuring the world champions, who have just been crowned.
Qualifying for the finals exhibits diversity as the majority of athletes have earned their positions by accumulating points throughout the 13 series meetings while some have secured their spots through special national or global wild card entries.
Indians participating in Diamond League 2023 Final
Neeraj Chopra, the reigning world and Olympic champion in javelin throw, stands as the solitary Indian representative in the forthcoming Diamond League 2023 Final in Eugene, USA. Although men’s long jumper Murali Sreeshankar and 3000m steeplechaser Avinash Sable had secured spots in the finals of their respective events, they made the strategic decision to forgo the Eugene meet in favor of focusing on the imminent Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, set to commence from September 23.
The Diamond League 2023 Final will mark Neeraj Chopra’s penultimate competitive appearance this season before the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou. On Saturday, Neeraj Chopra will strive to defend his title at the Diamond League 2023 Final.
Leading up to the finale in Eugene, Neeraj Chopra who clinched the world championship title in Budapest the previous month also triumphed in the Doha and Lausanne legs of the 2023 Diamond League series. However, he had to settle for the second position in Zurich, trailing behind the Czech Republic’s Jakub Vadlejch.
Athletes to watch out
Armand ‘Mondo’ Duplantis generates anticipation every time he steps into competition primarily because he possesses the potential to establish a new world record during any event that he participates in.
Two reigning world champions in women’s 100m will grace Eugene as Sha’Carri Richardson and Noah Lyles from the USA have affirmed their presence in the final.
When it comes to world records, no one in recent history has approached Florence Griffith-Joyner’s 35-year-old record in women’s 200m as closely as Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson has this season. In the final of the 200m at this year’s Worlds, Jackson came incredibly close and missed the mark by just 0.07 seconds while setting the second-fastest time in history (21.41).
She now has one more significant opportunity to make history at the Diamond League 2023 Final, so keep an eye out for an exciting showdown on Sunday.
