The provisional entry lists for the tenth meeting of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League, in London on 20-21 July, are now available.

AMES, Iowa -- Masters athletes ages 30-96 broke seven world record and 13 American records over four days of competition at Bill and Karen Bergan Track at the Cyclone Sports Complex on the campus of Iowa State University. 

Sifan Hassan, who arrived on the Stade Louis II track tonight (12) as the third fastest miler of all time, departed the Herculis EBS Diamond League meeting as the fastest, having produced a marvel of a final lap to finish in 4:12.33, thus breaking the 23-year-old mark of 4:12.56 held by Russia’s 1996 Olympic 800 and 1500m champion Svetlana Masterkova.

Ames, IA -- The USATF Masters Outdoor Track & Field Championships are set to begin at Iowa State University Thursday through Sunday, July 11-14. The world’s best athletes ranging from 30 to 96 years of age are among the more than 900 athletes competing at ISU’s Cyclone Sports Complex. 

The Nike Pre Classic was held on June 30, 2019. It was a fun meet and there were some excellent performances. Rai Benjamin blew my mind, his 47.16 shows that the 400m hurdlers in Doha should be a true highpoint. The Nike Pre Classic has the deepest fields of any DL event, year in and year out. For Nike, it is the yearly affirmation of the support that Nike gives to global athletics and a living, breathing to the late Steve Prefontaine, AR holder, 2000m-10,000m, and guiding spirit in the brand's early years.

High school athletes across Iowa have taken advantage of pristine spring weather to record 90 Blue Standard performances to guarantee their spot in the 2019 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships are returning to Des Moines, Iowa, July 25-28, 2019. The best track and field athletes in the country will compete at Drake University’s Drake Stadium on a quest to qualify for Team USATF at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar. The four day meet is the final stop of the 2019 USATF Outdoor Championship Series and will be broadcast on the NBC family of networks and webcast on NBC Sports Gold.

NEW YORK CITY -- Two American Records and a near-world record in the men’s mile made for a night to remember at the 112th NYRR Millrose Games.
