Cheruiyot looked like his old self by winning in Monaco for the fourth straight year, while Amos clocked a world-leading 1:42.91 in the 800. Lamecha Girma also ran a world leader in the steeple (8:07.75) despite kicking a lap early.
Kipyegon is now #4 all-time in the women’s 1500, while Muir is #2 among Brits all-time in the 800 but will only run the 1500 in Tokyo. Hyvin Kiyeng (9:03.82) won the steeple, her second DL victory in a week.
As usual, Monaco is LOADED. Some of these fields are better than the Olympic final (men's 800) and you almost certainly won't find a two-hour stretch in Tokyo as good as this. Stars are everywhere (Karsten Warholm, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Trayvon Bromell...the list goes on). You need to watch this meet.
Grace was only 7th in the 800 at the Olympic Trials, but four days (and almost 5,000 miles) later, she won her first career Diamond League. McSweyn ran 3:48.37 to break Craig Mottram's Aussie record as Eilish McColgan broke Paula Radcliffe's 5000 record by running 14:28.55 behind Hellen Obiri's victory.
