Pre Ranks #2 in IAAF Diamond League



 Pre Classic #2
For the fourth time in the past four years, the OTC's Prefontaine Classic has finished either No. 1 or No. 2 in the rankings of invitational meets produced by the IAAF. Since the inception of the IAAF Diamond League (IDL) in 2010, the Pre Classic has the highest average Competition Score of any IDL meet, and has not finished below third since 2010.
 
 The Hercules meet in Monaco, claimed No. 1 by a convincing margin, aided by a world record in the women's steeplechase, which happens to be one of the events on next year's Pre Classic schedule
           
In a sign of the predominant strength of the Diamond League, all 14 meets scored above 92,000 points for the first time.
