Thursday 22nd – Stade Louis II, Jones and Rybakov join Herculis fields - Samsung Diamond League

18-06-2010 -


    Lolo Jones and Yaroslav Rybakov are the latest stars confirmed for the Herculis Monaco – Samsung Diamond League – meeting on 22 July.

    Jones, the two-time World indoor 60m Hurdles champion, will headline the field in the 100m Hurdles after compiling an undefeated streak in the event in Samsung Diamond League competition this season. Most recently, the 28-year-old American clocked a world leading 12.55 against a high calibre field in New York.

    In March, Jones defended her World indoor 60 Hurdles title in style, breaking the US and Area record with a 7.72 run to become history’s third fastest in the event.

    Rybakov, one of the most consistent high jumpers in the world over much of the past decade, will arrive in the Principality as the reigning World champion. The 29-year-old Russian took World gold in a rainy competition in Berlin last summer, jumping 2.32m to defeat Kyriakos Ioannou of Cyprus and Sylwester Bednarek of Poland on countback. Both Ioannou, who took silver in Berlin, and Bednarek, who shared the bronze, will also be in the field aiming to get a measure of revenge against the Russian.
