Faith Kipyegon and Noah Lyles at the Prefontaine Classic Final

After 13 meetings from May to September, the final fields are now set as the Wanda Diamond League gets ready to crown its 2023 champions at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon, this weekend (16-17).


The world’s best athletes – including Faith Kipyegon and Noah Lyles, both of whom won two individual titles in Budapest last month – head to Hayward Field looking to end their seasons on a high, but the athletes who missed out on top honours in the Hungarian capital will be out for revenge.

Diamond trophies and top $30,000 prizes are up for grabs in the 32 finals taking place across the two days of action. The first 15 finals – 13 of which contain newly crowned world champions – will be contested on Saturday (16) and the remaining 17 on Sunday (17).

The majority of athletes qualified for the finals by earning points at the 13 series meetings, while others have been entered as national or global wild cards.
