It is practically a fact. As of 2020, the Diamond League will no longer have the triple jump, one of the competition's queen events.
The measure, controversial for others, was taken to adjust the format of the Diamente League with the commitments for television broadcasting. In addition to the triple jump, the 3 thousand meters obstacles, the 200 flat meters and the launch of the disc were also left out.
Of course, one of the first repercussions was in Colombia by Caterine Ibarguen. The triple jump is the modality where we have seen the coffee athlete shine. There he achieved his success in the Olympics and was champion of the Diamond League.
The message of Caterine Ibarguen after knowing the controversial measure:
This does not mean that we will not see Caterine Ibarguen again in the Diamond League. The IAAF retained the long jump for the competition. There could be the Colombian.
