The time for time trials is over, with world class athletics returning in Monaco this weekend.
Seven Australians feature on the start lists for the Monaco Diamond League meet:
- 800m duo Peter Bol and Joseph Deng;
- Metric miler Ryan Gregson; and
- 5000m runners Jessica Hull, Genevieve Gregson, Stewart McSweyn and Matthew Ramsden (who is reportedly the pace maker for the world record attempt by Joshua Cheptegei)
To celebrate the meet we’re running a tipping competition, where you need to guess the time that each Australian will record. If bragging rights aren’t enough of a prize, we’ll also be providing a $30 voucher to the Inside Athletics Shop.
