6 OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS IN SIX EVENTS ON SECHSELÄUTENPLATZ
All is ready for the second edition of Weltklasse Zürich on Sechseläutenplatz: Diamond Trophies will be awarded in two 5000m races, two shot put finals, the women’s pole vault and the men’s high jump.
Weltklasse Zürich on Sechseläutenplatz requires innovative infrastructure. The centrifugal forces developing in 5000m races or in the head-to-head wheelchair competitions, for instance, will be absorbed by the special temporary Conica track. So thankfully, there is no speed limit. The only restriction connected to the world’s longest track (560m): Any records athletes may set in the 5000m will not be ratified.
An aspect that does not dampen the excitement: Both athletes and fans are looking forward to two exciting 5000m finals. World champion Gudaf Tsegay (ETH) and Olympic champion Sifan Hassan (NED) will clash in the women’s race. The latter had come in sixth in Eugene, so, at this time, the odds may be in the world championship gold medallist’s favour. And there is world championship silver medallist and Commonwealth champion Beatrice Chebet (Ken), who will want to have a say in the outcome of the competition, as well.
Dominic Lobalu adds a Swiss touch to the line-up in the men’s race. A refugee from South Sudan, he has lived in St. Gallen for three years and has been training with the local club, together with coach Markus Hagmann. Their sessions seem to serve the purpose: Fans started to take notice, when Lobalu won the 3000m race at the Stockholm Diamond League meeting, in a sub 7:30 time, mind you. And he then went on to run an impressive 12:52.15 in the Brussels 5000m last week. Thus, Lobalu could be considered a secret favourite in the event on Sechseläutenplatz. In pole position to win, however, is Jacob Krop (KEN). The world championship silver medallist also holds the current world best performance. But it always seems wise to keep an eye on 10000m Olympic champion Selemon Barega (ETH) and 2021 winner Berihu Aregawi (ETH), as well.
