Panam Sports continues to broadcast live the most important events on our continent. The 5th date of the Diamond League will be broadcast this Saturday at the Pan American Gymnastics Championship in Santa Marta and the Youth World Weightlifting Championship in Lima, Peru.

The most important athletic event in the world returns to the American continent, specifically to Eugene Oregon, where the best athletes in the world will try to qualify for Paris 2024.

The particularity of this event is that many figures who had been somewhat absent in the first months of the year reappear, especially the Team USA athletes.

Such is the case of shot putters, Olympic and world medalists such as Ryan Crouser and Joe Kovacs. Discus thrower Laulauga Tausaga who will have a great duel with Olympic champion Valarie Allman and season leader Yaimé Pérez.

Another unmissable battle will be the 110 meter hurdles where world figures Gran Holloway and Hanlse Parchment, among others, will compete.

In the men’s 100 meters, the winner of the Xiamen Diamond, Christian Coleman of Team USA, returns, who will compete in an entertaining duel with Ferdinand Omanyala from Kenya and the Jamaican Ackeem Blake.

But where there are the most expectations in Eugene is in the women’s 200 meter dash. The return of the double Olympic gold medalist of the 100 and 200 meters in Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020, Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica, is expected there. “Fast Elaine” will make her debut this season in this competition.

But she will not be alone in the double hectometer. The great athlete from Saint Lucia and a great start to the year, especially in the indoor season, Julien Alfred, will be in the game. Along with them, the great figure of American speed and 100m world champion, Sha’Carri Richardson.
