Jackie Delaberre knows what he’s talking about. Athletissima’s sponsor has been the organizer for over 40 years. He is convinced that the field for participants of the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne is not only, no, it will make the hair on the backs of athletics fans come to an end.

“The 2022 edition promises to be exceptional,” says Delabier. “With no less than 12 Olympic champions and 14 world singles champions. This is the best field for our participants in 10 years.”

The city event in Lausanne kicks off Thursday evening with a pole vault. Starting at 6:00 PM, you’ll be there live on SRF Zwei. Friday’s main event will take place live from 8pm on SRF Zwei and in the SRF Sports App.

Often difficult negotiations with the directors were taking place behind the scenes, but in the end, a week before Athens, it was all about adjusting the field of participants. Alternatives to cancellation were sought and the waiting list was modified. Delapierre has already completed most of the contracts at the World Championships in the USA. Because the highest paid stars mostly come from abroad.

The women’s 100m race is the most important event. The three fastest runners on the planet will be at the start: Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Sherika Jackson, and Elaine Thompson-Herrah. Mujinja Kamponge will be the only European (!) in this area.

After impressive performances in the European Championships with the gold over 200m and silver over 100m, the 30-year-old from Berne has a great deal of self-confidence in her legs.
