DIAMOND LEAGUE : Eugene and Paris meetings postponed

The Wanda Diamond League suspended a further two meetings in June as it continues to adapt the 2020 season calendar in the face of the coronavirus crisis, while Oslo’s Bislett Games are to be staged in an alternative format.

In recent weeks, the Wanda Diamond League has been forced to suspend a number of its early-season meetings as a result of health and logistical concerns brought about by the global coronavirus crisis.

Today the series announced the postponement of further meetings in Eugene (scheduled for 7 June) and Paris (13 June).

The Bislett Games also announced plans to host an alternative athletics competition, an exhibition event dubbed 'The Impossible Games', on 11 June, the original date of this year’s Oslo Diamond League meeting.

European championships canceled

The European Athletics Championships, initially scheduled from 25 to 30 August in Paris, will not take place due to the health situation. They were canceled, not postponed to 2021.
