BRUSSELS – The entry list for the 46th Allianz Memorial Van Damme, known as the Brussels Diamond League, is taking further shape and looks impressive.
No less than 39 world championships medal winners are lining up in Brussels, 9 of them are world champions. Another 23 European Area medal winners (9 golds) and 23 Olympic medal winners (5 gold) complete the picture.
The 800 meters gathers the Oregon 2022 top 3, the European Championships top 2 and the Olympic silver medalist; Jake Wightman, a World 1500-meter champion, is also entered.
The women’s high jump also brings the Eugene top 3 together again, as well as European silver medalist Maria Vukovic and Belgian Nafi Thiam, who jumped highest of all athletes in Munich (198) in the heptathlon.
The men’s pole vault is the deepest field ever in Brussels, headed by Mondo Duplantis in terms of performance levels.
In the women’s 100-meter hurdles, European champion Pia Skrzyszowska is added to the field, while Shericka Jackson joins the mind-blowing lineup for the women’s 100 meters.
