With the Diamond League returning last week, it got me thinking about which storylines I'm most interested in following this season. There's a lot to talk about, but as a general theme, I'm excited to see whether some of the results we saw at the Olympics hold up this year. Is Marcell Jacobs still the guy to beat in the 100? Ingebrigtsen in the 1500? Is Frerichs now better than Coburn in the steeple?
I'm sure you guys will disagree, so feel free to let me know what you're most excited about this year. I didn't really talk about the field events much but that's in part because the biggest storylines there are unbeatable stars like Rojas and Duplantis chasing their own WRs. Rojas going over 16 meters would be epic, and Duplantis is definitely a star but I'm more interested in watching a guy like Grant Holloway chase his first outdoor WR than Duplantis raising his own WR by a centimeter at a time. To each his own.
