- Sports Brief take a look at the current table with African athletes surprisingly dominating
Christian Coleman dropped the fastest time this year to win the first-ever 100 metre men's Diamond League event in Xiamen, China, on September 2.
The 2019 champion equalled Noah Lyles' and Zharnel Hughes' times this season to finish ahead of Kishane Thompson and Fred Kerley.
The Brussels leg at the Allianz Memorial Van Damme on September 8 will be the last meet before the athletes troop to the Hayward Field in Eugene for the 2023 finals.
The 100m men lineup is looking strong, with new world champion, Noah Lyles indicating he might be available for the showdown on home soil later this month.
Kerley tops the current Diamond League lists after finishing third in China. The result, coupled with his early-season wins in Rabat and Florence plus a second-place finish in Silesia, sees the 2022 World Champion rank ahead of African duo, Ferdinand Omanyala and Akani Simbine.
Omanyala won in Monaco on July 21 in what was his first-ever victory at a Diamond League event, while Simbine beat Kerley in Silesia. The South African also won in Stockholm.
