The 2019 Diamond League track and field season has its first final this Thursday in Zürich and we break it down in this week’s LetsRun.com Track Talk Podcast.
First, we start by discussing Christian Coleman missing three drug tests. What does that mean for Worlds? Then we talk Hanna Green winning in Paris, have some men’s 1500m talk and then talk the Diamond League final in detail. Can Emma Coburn go sub-9 in the steeple and get the American record? We end with June Eastwood becoming the first transgender women’s Division I cross country athlete.
