Event by event preview
MEN 200 m: Without injured Dix (who lost so his chance for the Diamond) Blake looks like the favorite to win, Spearmon follows. 400 m: Wariner is confirmed winner of DR, needs only end the race. Will Gonzales chase him? 5000 m: Great field in depth, also open one. Merga has the maximum of points of the entrants and a second place is enough for him to win the Diamond, but also fast time is expected. SC: The best field of the year so far (Both French, all top Kenyans, Shaheen). First years sub 8 is possible, Diamond Race has more possibilities but likely one of the three Kenyans will get it. 110mH: Oliver in best shape and is confirmed DR winner.
