1 year ago

DOHA and opening day were so great we're giving everyone the Doha portion of our Supporters Club podcast. If you want a 2nd podcast every week, join the Supporters Club today: use code CLUB25 to save 25% on your first year.

The Diamond League opened with a bang in DOHA as Sha'Carri Richardson got the huge win, Fred Kerley got a nice won as well, and Michael Norman bombed.

In the distances, Lamecha Girma showed 3k greatness, Emma Coburn fell in the steeple, but is she in trouble, Faith Kipyegon impressed, and what about the men's 800?

And then at 67:29 we talk about the Sound Running Meet and what Katelyn Tuohy might do in the 5000 and at 78:47 talk adidas Atlanta City Games.
