Diamond League returns to London in 2023 with finals in Eugene
The 2023 Diamond League will be the biggest yet with 15 events scheduled, including a return to London and the finals to be held for the first time in Eugene, the organisers announced Wednesday.
Two meetings of the elite athletics one-day track and field series are slated to take place in China - in Shenzen and Shanghai - even though the country has cancelled all international sporting events since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
Silesia, in Poland, which was added to the programme this year to make up for the loss of Chinese events, officially joins the circuit for the next five years.
The series, which starts in Doha on May 5, will return to London after a three-year hiatus, with the London Stadium hosting the event on July 23.
For the first time ever, the Diamond League Final will take place not in Zurich or Brussels, but on US soil at the Prefontaine Classic.
Eugene, Oregon which staged this year's athletics world championships will host the 2023 season finale, with all 32 Diamond League champions to be crowned across two days of elite athletics action on September 16 and 17.
