Arguably, the race of the meeting is the men’s 110m hurdles – an event with a long and rich tradition at the premier Chinese one-day meeting. In a stellar field, which would grace any world or Olympic final, the star attraction is world and Olympic champion Omar McLeod, who is seeking a hat-trick of Diamond League wins in Shanghai.
Nonetheless, the Jamaican hurdle king faces formidable opposition and knows should he put a foot wrong a classy line up of opponents will be certain to pounce, led by 2017 world silver medallist and Diamond League winner Sergey Shubenkov.
Other stellar names on show include: world 110m hurdles record-holder Aries Merritt of the US, Spain’s Olympic silver medallist Orlando Ortega and the Jamaican duo Ronald Levy and Hansle Parchment, who recently finished 1-2 at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
In a meet, which has attracted 20 reigning world and Olympic champions few events can match the men’s 100m for quality. Local attention will be focused on the “dash duo” Su Bingtian, the World Indoor 60m silver medallist and the man who triumphed in this event in Shanghai 12 months ago, and World Indoor 60m fourth-place finisher in Birmingham Xie Zhenye.
