Discus Throw is back in the Diamond League!

World Athletics announced today that discus throw, and indeed all events, are once again on the programme of the Diamond League, the top one-day meeting series in the world.

Global Throwing would like to thank all athletes, coaches and friends who helped us to lead on the discus dialogue at the highest levels. Thank you to Swedish Athletics Federation for your support and World Athletics and the Meeting Directors of the Diamond League for taking the time to speak to us and listen to our concerns and ideas.  We look forward to further cooperation to help promote the sport to the widest audience and fans of all events and athletes.

Our Management World Championships Gold and Silver medallists: Daniel Stahl and Fedrick Dacres, were happy to receive the exciting news and promised to put on a great discus show throughout the 2021 Diamond League circuit.
