The Diamond League season continues in Shanghai as some of the world’s best athletes begin to gear up for Paris 2024.

With this summer’s Olympics looming into view, track and field competitors will contend with a hectic schedule, with the first six events of the season all before the end of May.

American sprinters Christian Coleman and Fred Kerley will look to lay down a marker in the men’s 100 metres, with compatriot Sha’carri Richardson is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing performance at the season opener in Xiamen.

Off the track, Armand DuPlantis could push to again better his pole vault world record after a staggering clearance last weekend.

Here’s everything you need to know.
