Lausanne Diamond League 2023: Full schedule, fixtures, live streaming details
Two Indian athletes will be taking part in the competition.
The Diamond League 2023 is back with its sixth leg which is all set to kick off at the La Pontaise Olympic Stadium (Stade Olympique de la Pontaise) in Lausanne, Switzerland on June 30, 2023. Elite athletes from all over the world will be battling it out at the Lausanne Diamond League 2023 to earn significant points at the athletics meet. This is in order to qualify for the finals to be held for the first time ever in the USA at the Hayward Field in Eugene, also the venue which hosted the World Athletics Championships 2022.
One of the disciplines that will grab a lot of eyeballs will be the men’s 1500m race where the reigning Olympic champion Jakob Ingebrigsten, Olympics silver medalist and former World champion Timothy Cheruiyot, and the current World champion Jake Wightman will be in action to assert their dominance.
Another event to watch out will be the battle between the Olympics gold medalist Jasmine Camacho-Quinn and the Worlds and Commonwealth Games champion Tobi Amusan. The duo’s first recent clash was a few days ago when they met each other in the Ostrava Golden Spike 2023 where Jasmine clocked the meet record of 12.42 against Tobi’s 12.47. Similarly, the other Diamond League events will also be thrilling, considering the impressive crop of athletes competing.

Indians participating at Lausanne Diamond League 2023
Reigning Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra and Commonwealth Games 2022 silver medalist Murali Sreeshankar are the two Indians who will be participating in the upcoming Lausanne Diamond League 2023. Neeraj will be marking his return to the international circuit after kicking off his 2023 season at the Doha Diamond League 2023, where he won in a strong field with a massive throw of 88.67m.
After the Doha leg, Neeraj had remained out of competitions as he was still recovering from injury. In Lausanne, he will face off against a similar competitive lineup who he defeated in Doha comprising the likes of reigning World Champion Anderson Peters, Olympic silver and two-time World Championship medalist Jakub Vadlejch, current European champion Julian Weber, and the 2012 Olympics gold medalist Keshorn Walcott.
Murali Sreeshankar, the in-form long jumper from India, will be making his second appearance at the Diamond League 2023 season with the Lausanne leg. His first was the Paris Diamond League where he finished third in the men’s long jump with a leap of 8.09m and claimed six crucial Diamond League points. His biggest competitors will be reigning Olympic champion Miltiadis Tentoglou and Worlds bronze medalist Simon Ehammer, who outclassed Tentoglou in the Oslo meet with a jump of 8.32m.
