The Meeting de Paris on Saturday (24) marks the final scoring opportunity in the IAAF Diamond League ahead of the finals in Zurich (29 August) and Brussels (6 September).
Many of the places in the finals have already been secured, but lots can still change in the standings for the 14 scoring disciplines being contested in the French capital.
WOMEN’S POLE VAULT
Qualified after 5/6 meetings: Katerina Stefanidi (GRE), Sandi Morris (USA), Yarisley Silva (CUB), Anzhelika Sidorova (ANA), Katie Nageotte (USA), Robeilys Peinado (VEN), Alysha Newman (CAN)
Final: Brussels, 6 September
Regular competition between the world’s best vaulters means that seven women have already qualified for Brussels. Angelica Bengtsson and Jenn Suhr have not yet qualified but will be competing in Paris and should consolidate their top-12 position in the standings. And if Eliza McCartney, who will be making her 2019 Diamond League debut in Paris, manages to pull off a victory, it could – in theory – be enough to qualify for the final.
