Ambassadors Fraser and Vili join Herculis line-up – Samsung Diamond League

15-06-2010-


Only a few athletes in their careers ever can claim World Championship titles and even fewer gold medals at the Olympic Games. Holding both honours is a distinction reached by only the greatest.

This is why Herculis Monaco – Samsung Diamond League is especially proud to announce that two more Samsung Diamond League Ambassadors, World and Olympic champions Shelly-Ann Fraser (JAM) and Valerie Vili (NZL) will be competing at Louis II stadium in Monaco on 22 July.

After her winning race in Herculis last year, Shelly-Ann Fraser went onto take the World Championship 100m crown in Berlin in a time of 10.73sec, which makes her the 5th fastest athlete on the all-time list for this event.

The Jamaican’s Berlin triumph, which was augmented with 4x100m relay gold, was confirmation of her splendid Olympic Games victory in Beijing the previous summer, where she revealed her refreshing smile to the world for the first time stood at the top of a global medal podium.


Valerie Vili also owns both global titles. The shot putting ace took the Berlin title last year with a release of 20.44m which was the continuation of a long winning streak highlighted along the way by the Olympic laurels in Beijing which had in turn followed on from her victories at the 2007 World Championships in Osaka and at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

New Zealand’s best athlete will be competing for the second time in Monaco following on from the 2005 World Athletics Final when she finished second in the Louis II stadium.
