    I had no idea that Wanda Group was a Chinese company. 2 Chinese cities now makes sense.

    Emma Coburn says she will not participate in the demoted steeple at Diamond League meetings.

    The prize money for the individual races would be on par with DL events at those meetings, but Coburn has issue both with being pushed out of the broadcast window and the lost opportunity to participate in the DL final.

    Announcement is here:

    Prior to making the decision, Coburn had expressed her disappointment with the steeple's demotion in an article published earlier this month:

    Guessing she'll probably run the WA continental tour which has 21 meets through the year.

    No...
    Coburn’s husband/coach Joe Bosshard also told LetsRun that Coburn doesn’t plan on running any steeples in World Athletics’ rebranded Continental Tour, which features reduced prize money compared to the Diamond League
