2020 Diamond League
Sorted By Event

Which Events Are In Which Meets?

The Diamond League has had multiple formats since it kicked off with the ’10 season. In the first 7 editions of the DL, each of 16 events was contested 6 times (for each sex) in the pre-Final meets before all were staged in the finales in Zürich and Brussels…

For the ’17 season there were only 8 such disciplines: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500/Mile, 110H, HJ & PV. It was down to 4 appearances at the other 8 events: steeple, 3000/5000, 400H, LJ, TJ, SP, DT, JT… For ’18 & ’19, the 400H was moved back to the list of events contested in 6 non-final meets…

For ’20, there’s a new title sponsor (Wanda), the addition of a 15th meet (at a still-to-be-determined site in China) and a more condensed program, with fewer events, and 5000s being replaced with 3000s. The 200, steeplechase, triple jump & discus are no longer what WA now calls “Diamond Disciplines.” Instead, those 4 events are called “Included Disciplines,” with each sex receiving 5 appearances for the 2 runs and 1 appearance each for the 2 field events. None of those events are part of DL final, which for the first time will be a 1-meet affair, in Zürich…

As always, there is nothing (well, other than financial constraints) to stop meets from adding events that aren’t on their DL roster, although they don’t count in an athlete’s DL point totals.
