D-Day – 10: Herculis Monaco finalizes its lists – Samsung Diamond League

12-07-2010-


10 days prior to the meeting, more Champions are being confirmed to compete in Stade Louis II on July 22.

On the 110m Hurdles, the audience will watch the best confrontation this event offers: Olympic Champion and World Record Holder Dayron Robles, 13.01 this season, will be opposed to David Oliver, American Record Holder and World Leader in a time of 12.90. No doubt that the winner of this race should be under the meeting record of 13.06 set by Dayron Robles last year.

Still on the hurdles, but on 400m Hurdles this time, Bershawn Jackson will be the man to watch: winner in Lausanne and US Champion in Des Moines, with a world lead time of 47.32, close to his personal best of 47.30 set in Helsinki in 2005, when he won his world title. Probably in the best shape of his life, Bershawn will be back in Monaco where he ran 47.98 last year, and like his fellow 110m Hurdlers, the meeting record of 47.60 set by Kevin Young is also in danger.

Organisers already announced World Champion Dwight Phillips, and today it is the long jumper Irving Saladino’s turn. The Olympic Champion is back in his shape of 2008 when he jumped his continental record of 8.73. Winner in Eugene with a jump of 8.46 meters windy, this duel coming up will be another confrontation to watch.

Stade Louis II will welcome the fastest woman on the 100m for the past 10 years. Indeed, Carmelita Jeter will be coming on July 22nd, and her 10.64 run last year in Shanghai are the fastest time run since 2000. Winner in Shanghai, Lausanne and Gateshead, she will be looking to ensure her lead at the Diamond Race in Monaco.
