The IAAF Diamond League is heating up with just four meetings left in 2019 as the competition arrives in Birmingham.


Big names from across the world will descend on the Alexander Centre for the ninth successive year.

USA's 100m sensation Christian Coleman and Team GB heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson are among the stars to be on show this weekend.

Coleman sprinted a 9.81 earlier this year in Stanford and the 23-year-old is expected to make waves during his debut Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.

The US star beat Usain Bolt by 0.01 seconds twice at the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London – in both the semi-final and final of the 100m – though compatriot Justin Gatlin edged Coleman by a further 0.02 in the final.
