More Diamond League meets cancelled due to COVID-19

This season's Paris and Eugene Diamond League meetings have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers also confirmed the meeting at Gateshead in England, which was scheduled for August 16, has been postponed.

The event in Eugene, which was originally scheduled for October 6, was scrapped as the state of Oregon currently has a ban of gatherings, including sporting events until at least the end of September.

The Diamond League has identified September 12 as a possible alternate date for the Gateshead meeting, but must wait before announcing confirmation due to British government guidelines and restrictions.

Due to the growing number of countries affected by COVID-19, the Diamond League season could not start as planned in Doha on April 17.

Meetings have been since cancelled in London, Rabat and Zurich, which was originally scheduled to host the season finale in September, while other events on the calendar were postponed due to the pandemic.
