After the setbacks at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, the Nigerian duo of Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume have been presented with another opportunity to end what has been a difficult season on a high.
The 2023 Wanda Diamond League season has reached its climax, as all attention turns to the finale this weekend in Oregon, USA, where Amusan and Brume will be slugging it out with the very best in the world.
Having spanned a challenging five-month qualification phase, across 13 events and four continents, the globe’s elite athletes are gearing up to compete for the coveted Diamond Trophy, at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene.
The competition is scheduled to kick off from September 16th – 17th, 2023.
The victor in each of the 32 events (16 for men and 16 for women) will be named 2023 champion and take home the bragging rights less than a year before the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The scene is set for one of the most exciting finals in history, with many of the stars of the recent World Athletics Championships in Budapest returning for one last chance to rise victorious at the end of the 2023 season.
World records will be on the line, surprises most likely sprung and a host of new champions crowned as competitors look to run, jump and throw their way into the history books.
