The countdown is on to the Paris 2024 Olympics with the world’s best athletes and para athletes set to make their final preparations at the iconic London Stadium.  Anticipation levels are high with London Diamond League tickets in hot demand so far.  They are current off sale, see above to be alerted as soon as they are back on sale.

In July 2023 the famous stadium – scene of Super Saturday and Thriller Thursday not to mention an extraordinary array of sporting moments – saw athletics return after absence of four years.  And with just six days to go until the Olympic Games opening ceremony in Paris the London Diamond League (formerly known as the Anniversary Games) is back.

A stellar cast of world, European, Commonwealth and Olympic athletes are expected to take part.  Including members of the GB & NI team who starred at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

2023 RECAP

Last year GB’s Zharnel Hughes starred with a take down of the long-standing British 200m men’s record, narrowly beaten by American star Noah Lyles who produced a huge meeting record with a time of 19.47.  And in the women’s 100m British star and global medalist Dina Asher-Smith produced a brilliant season’s best run of 10.85, while Jemma Reekie toppled a world-class field to take a memorable victory in the women’s 800m.

Other highlights included the men’s shot put where world record holder Ryan Crouser (USA) threw 23.07m to demolish the competition.  The imperious Femke Bol (NED) blew the competition away on her London debut.  The Dutch star set a blistering European record of 51.45 in the women’s 400m hurdles.  In the men’s 400m world record holder Wayde van Niekerk swept to victory on 44.37.

Fresh from her exploits as a quadruple medallist at the World Para Athletics Championships the previous week, Sammi Kinghorn returned to home soil in 2023 with a flourish as she made a late move to win the women’s mixed classification 800m wheelchair race.  Double T34 world champion Hannah Cockroft took third in 1:47.11 on a memorable return to the stadium where she has won so much silverware.

The 2024 edition can’t come soon enough as athletes and para athletes use the event to fine-tune their preparations ahead of the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Don’t miss out on the biggest one-day athletics spectacular of the year.  Get your friends and family together and secure your seats for an action-packed day out!
