The 2014 Diamond League track and field series gets started in Doha.

Asbel Kiprop, Silas Kiplagat, Makhloufi and Wote produced a "classic" and "astonishing" 1,500 to start the season. The Ethiopian national record was set and it only got 6th place.

Was this the greatest women's 3,000m race ever run?

Email interview with the breakout 2014 800m star.

Eunice Sum got the win in the battle of world champions as Chanelle Price went sub-2:00 and Molly Beckwith improved.

The 1.75-year wait for for young studs Mo Aman and Nijel Amos to race each other was worth it. Read all about and watch the race.

What a meet!!! The women's 800 (world indoor champ Chanelle Price vs outdoor champ Eunice Sum), the women's 3000 (Genzebe Dibaba versus Hellen Obiri and Mercy Cherono) and men's steeple (clash between Olympic champs Ezekiel Kemboi and Brimin Kipruto) are all pretty amazing.

At the 2012 Olympics, the best 1500 runner on the planet Asbel Kiprop was injured and Taoufik Makhloufi ended up being totally dominant - some think too dominant. Well they will clash on Friday with each other as well as Silas Kiplagat and the third and fourth placers from Moscow. A MUST WATCH start to the season.

Oh Baby: The Diamond League Kicks Off In Style - Aman vs. Amos at 800

Since losing in Doha last year, Mo Aman has been 100% unbeatable. But he hasn't had to face David Rudisha or Nijel Amos. That all changes on Friday. A sensational early season race which you need to slip out of work for at 12:56 pm ET.
