    Well if you hear anything definite it would be nice...

    Everything having to do with Hayward Field has been a big mystery ever since the WC were awarded....the place was supposed to be under construction by now....

      Hayward Field construction is under the aegis of the University of Oregon, which has nothing to do with the staging of the Pre Classic (other than its being the landlord which rents out a facility to an outside group).

        What is missing in the DL events on the men's side is that every DL meet alternates events like having a 1 or a 2 and a 4 or an 8 and a 15 or steeple/5k. The meet is essentially missing either a DL 4 or an 8 by my interpretation.

          If you look at the DL site, I think you'lll find that every meet in the series is listing only DL events at this point.

            It's pretty clear there is going to be at least one year they cannot stage Pre at Hayward, it would be nice to get some ideas of where they want to host it.

            I can't wait for Pre this year, though I am a little bummed I won't get to see Mondo there. The women are jumping amazing, hopefully we get decent weather and a great competition

                Not certain the PV is not being held, since they can have whatever non-DL events that they want, so just because it is not on the Pre DL rotation does not mean it cannot be held. However, since they spend BIG on the meet, they not focus on the mPV this year.

                In past years has the "pre-Pre" program been listed as part of the meet, because the DL stuff has always been one day.

                  For some reason, the DL basically always lists it as a one-day. If you read the press releases that are coming out (one on the mSP posted to our front page yesterday) you'll see it's dated as May 25-26.

                    Only twice has Pre ever had both PVs in the same meet, '02 and '04, and those both predated the Diamond League.

                    Doesn't fit well in a tightly controlled program.

                      not true... DL wLJ and wJT were held on Friday last year.

                        A press release from the Herculis Meeting in Monaco reveals that 2 additional events (non-DL) have been added to the program, w100H and m800, and that the men's and women's shot put will be held the evening before in Port Hercule.

                        Ticket sales for Meeting Herculis EBS 2018 are open
                        The Monaco Federation of Athletics invites all of its fans to jump at the chance to book their evening of July 20th at Louis II Stadium to attend the 2018 edition of the Herculis EBS Meeting.

                        The loyal spectators of the Herculis EBS meeting left the Monegasque stadium last July struck by an exceptional entertainment offered by the legend Usain Bolt and the best of the world of athletics. The 2017 edition had allowed to establish 5 world leading performances, 7 National Records, 3 Meeting Records and 1 Diamond League Record.

                        The 2018 edition will reach new heights with the confirmation of World champions Mutaz Barshim (High Jump) and Katerina Stefanidi (Pole Vault) who already received their "Diamond Pass". They will be joined by more champions within the next weeks to shine during the Monaco stop of the IAAF Diamond League.

                        Ticket rates between 10and 50
                        -- Information and booking on www.herculis.com --
                        The meeting will propose 13 Diamond League events :
                        Women : 100m, 400m, 800m, 3000mSC, Pole Vault, Shot Put, 100mH (additionnal),
                        Men : 200m, 1500m, 110mH, 3000mSC, High Jump, Triple Jump, Shot Put, 800m (additionnal)

                            Even though the DL site has several references to London being 20/21, I believe 27-28 is the correct dating. Indeed, if you go to the Monaco and London DL sites, you'll see the countdown calendar lists them as 6 days apart.

                            [edited to note that the London ticket site is pretty clear that teh 20/21 dates are correct]

                            As for Z-B being back-to-back, that's very much on purpose; an experiment to see if the DL Finale can get more traction by being a 2-day extravaganza instead of being separated by a week.

                              ps— putting Monaco and London on consecutive days has little effect on the DL since there are zero events that overlap between the two. (those running both the 100 and 200 would disagree, of course)

                                Yeah there is no way they are going to bring all of the international male vaulters over there if it is not a Diamond League event. In theory, they could probably put together a nice domestic field + Mondo and Shawn Barber for minimal expense.

                                Of course I would LOVE that, but I am not holding my breath
