This weekend, he can become the first man to win the Diamond League title in both distances if he wins the 200m. Norman, who holds the world’s fastest time in 2019 in the 400m, will also compete this weekend, as well as Keni Harrison, 2016 Diamond League champion and world record holder in the women’s 100m hurdles.
