Diamond League returning to China in 2022

The Diamond League has announced a provisional calendar for the 2022 season, with athletes set to compete in China for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

The season begins in Doha on May 13 and ends in Zurich on September 7-8 in a two-day finale, while China will host meetings in July and August.
