LetsRun.com's One-Line Preview Of The 2011 Zurich Diamond League Meet

By LetsRun.com
September 6, 2011

We know many of you just spent 9 + days focusing on track and might be a little fatigued. So while it may be hard for many of you to fathom, the facts are that the Samsung Diamond League will recommence on Thursday in Zurich. This is the next to last event on the Diamond League circuit. The Diamond League concludes in Brussels next Friday (September 16th).

There are some good match-ups taking place in Zurich. LetsRun.com viewers will probably be most interested in the women's 800, men's 1500 and men's 100.

But we ourselves find it hard to believe it all takes place on Thursday. Thus we present to you the quickest preview in history. Below you will find the start lists for all of the mid-d and distance events plus the men's 100, plus our one-line preview of those events.
