2011 Monaco Diamond League Preliminary Start Lists

By LetsRun.com
July 12, 2011

The next Diamond League meeting won't take place until next Friday (July 22nd) in Monaco. The mini-break in action is a good thing in our minds as it lets anticipation build. Based on the preliminary start lists that were released on Tuesday, the meet promises to be a real treat.

The men's 5000 might end up being a preview of the world championships as many of Kenya and Ethiopia's best will clash will the top Americans in a race where the American 5000 meter men's mark may fall as Bernard Lagat, Galen Rupp, Chris Solinsky and Matt Tegenkamp are all entered. Never before have more than 2 American broken 13:00 in the same race. Can 3 or 4 do it in Monaco?

Andrew Wheating will race in the men's 1,500 against 2011 world leader Nixon Chepseba and a slew of others.

The top 2 from the US championships in the 800 in Nick Symmonds and Khadevis Robinson will face world record holder David Rudisha in the men's 800 and the top 2 from the US champs in the men's steeple in Billy Nelson and Dan Huling also will race - although in the most anti-climatic event of the night as the men's steeple is the final event - just after Usain Bolt races in the men's 100.  The fans will probably be antsy to see the steeple end so the post-meet fireworks can begin.

Plus there are a few interesting off-event entries like Abubaker Kaki in the men's 1,500 and Shalane Flangan in the women's 1500.

Mid-d and distance start lists appear below. Other events can be found here.
