The United States leads the way with an outstanding 68 athletes qualified to compete in the Diamond League final. Jamaica, Cuba, Canada, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Venezuela, Dominica, Bahamas, Panama, Barbados, Guyana and Puerto Rico also have athletes competing in the finals.

Two Ambassadors of Team Panam Sports for Santiago 2023, Marileidy Paulino of the Dominican Republic and Anderson Peters of Grenada, will also compete in their respective events of the women’s 400m and men’s javelin. Both athletes seek to add a Diamond League championship to their resume before preparing to compete at the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games this October and November.
All eyes will be on the premier and final competition of the two-day meet, as Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson seeks to make history by breaking the women’s 200m world record that has stood since Florence Joyner-Griffith set the mark of 21.34 seconds in 1988. Jackson ran the second-fastest time in history at the 2023 World Athletics Championships, clocking a 21.45s on August 25. Now, she seeks to put her name at the top of the history books.
