Driouch for Doha Diamond League

QATAR’S middle-distance runner Hamza Driouch confirmed his presence for the Doha Diamond League meet, to be held at the Qatar Sports Club Stadium on May 5.

Driouch will have his task cut out in a strong 1,500M field, also comprising Kenya’s three-time world champion Asbel Kiprop, and compatriots Silas Kiplagat and Elijah Manangoi.

Driouch is the fourth Qatari athlete in the fray for the season-opening meet, after ace high jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim, sprint sensation Femi Seun Ogunode and promising 400M hurdler Abdulrahman Samba.

The men’s 3,000M event also features a strong line-up consisting of Kenya’s Rio Olympic gold medallist Conseslus Kipruto, America’s Paul Chelimo and Ethiopia’s Hagos Gebrhiwat.
