Kenyans Hellen Obiri and Beatrice Chepkoech will headline the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Doha, Qatar, on April 16 and 17.

For the first time in its 22-year history, the Doha Diamond League meeting will be held over two days across two different venues. The Qatar Sports Club will host the main programme, but the men’s high jump will take place at the Amphitheatre of the Katara Cultural Village on the evening of April 16.

Obiri, the women’s world cross-country and 5000m champion, is an experienced Diamond League competitor who ran 8:25.60 to win the 3000m at last year’s Doha Diamond League.

Chepkoech, the women’s world 3000m steeplechase champion, is the current world record-holder with a best of 8:44.32.

“We are excited with the line-up of stars for the 22nd edition of the Doha Diamond League,” said Qatar Athletics Federation president Thani Alkuwari. “A large number of world and Olympic medallists confirmed for the event is an indication of the importance of the Doha meet and we look forward to a highly successful competition.”

The 2020 Wanda Diamond League comprises 14 meetings – commencing with Doha – leading to a single final at the end of the season. Each meeting will be broadcast globally in a fast-paced 90-minute programme.
