Headphones on, head down, hit the track. That's the routine for most athletes on the day before a Wanda Diamond League meeting. In 2022, training diaries once again caught up with some of the sport's biggest stars to find out how they prepare for the toughest meetings of the summer calendar.
Yohan Blake still holds the Diamond League records in both the 100m and 200m, and the Jamaican star returned to the circuit in Birmingham at the start of the season with a second-place finish behind Canada's Aaron Brown. US long jumper Tara Davis was next in front of the cameras ahead of the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, while Japan's Abdul Hakim Sani Brown also took to the training track ahead of his 100m Diamond League debut in Oslo.
Olympic 800m champion Athing Mu made her first ever overseas Diamond League appearance in Rome, and she looked cool as a cucumber as she prepared for victory against the breathtaking backdrop of the Stadio dei Marmi.
