Less than four months after the opening meeting of the series, the 2013 IAAF Diamond League will reach a climax on Friday (6) in Brussels at the Belgacom Van Damme Memorial.
Multi-event talent Nafi Thiam will be in action in the high jump for the occasion. With world class jumpers such as Anna Chicherova and Blanka Vlasic in the field the women’s high jump is likely to become one of the highlights. The European Junior champion and national record holder in the heptathlon will be looking to improve on her 1m92 PB from Moscow.
In the pole vault another multi-eventer is set to round off a great season. In his Diamond League debut, World University Games gold medalist Thomas Van der Plaetsen will be looking to build on his 5m35 PB.
Also tonight, Jan Van Den Broeck will be in action in the men’s 800m B heat. Amongst others, American Brandon Johnson and Britton Michael Rimmer will be joining him on the start-line.
