the DiamondLeague is an annual series of top-tier track and field competitions organized by World Athletics.

The competition in Paris will be the fourth leg of the 2023 Diamond League season. The Diamond League Final will be held in Eugene, USA, on September 16 and 17.

It will be Murali Sreeshankar’s second Diamond League appearance. On his debut in Monaco last year, he finished sixth with a jump of 7.94 meters.

The 24-year-old Murali Sreeshankar comes into the Paris Diamond League on the back of a good start this season. He won a World Athletics Continental Tour bronze label event in Kallithea, Greece last month with his season-best jump of 8.18m and made the cut for the upcoming Asian Games in China.

Earlier, Sreeshankar won gold medals at the third Indian Grand Prix in March and at the MVA High-Performance athletics meet (USA) in May with jumps of 7.94m and 8.29m (wind-assisted), respectively.

At the Paris Diamond League, Sreeshankar will look to breach the entry standard for world championships set at 8.25m.

Since Sreeshankar’s effort of 8.29m in the USA was wind-assisted, it did not help him qualify for the World Athletics Championships, to be held in Budapest in August. Sreeshankar’s personal best was 8.36m. the national record of 8.42m belongs to Jeswin Aldrin.

Murali Sreeshankar will be up against the likes of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Miltiadis Tentoglou of Greece and bronze medallist Maykel Masso of Cuba. Miltiadis Tentoglou is also the reigning Diamond League champion.

Switzerland’s Simon Ehammer, the 2022 world championships bronze medallist, two-time U20 world champion Erwan Konate of France, former South American champion Emiliano Lasa of Uruguay and Swedish long jumper Thobias Montler, who finished runner-up at the 2022 World Indoor Championships, will be part of the 10-man men’s long jump field in Paris.
