  • Derek Drouin, Philip Milanov, David Oliver, Asbel Kiprop and Michelle Carter look ahead to the Diamond League event in Doha,

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Derek Drouin, High Jump, 2015 World Champion

    "My expectations on Friday are just to keep progressing. It will be my second meet of the year, the first one of this quality of field. I just want to feel like I am improving and constantly getting better as we lead into Rio. I think it's probably going to be the same goal for the rest of the field, but when we all get together and people start getting competitive, you know sometimes very special things can happen."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Philip Milanov, Discus (On his hopes for the Diamond League)

    "Three days ago I threw 66.88 (metres), so I was not very good, in shape. But now I feel good, so maybe I hope for a top-four or five. It would be nice to begin with."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) David Oliver, 110m hurdles, 2013 World Champion

    "Six times, I have had some great results here. Pretty much every time I've been here it's been a pretty good result, so I am looking forward to continuing that on Friday.

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Asbel Kiprop, 1500m, 2008 Olympic gold medallist, three-time World Champion

    "I am looking forward to staying fit, to be able to race at the World Championships here in Qatar. I think it will be a very nice experience for me and I hope also that it will be fifth title and hopefully I will be here."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Michelle Carter, Shot Putt, 2016 World Indoor Champion

    "That it's warm. I enjoy the warm weather, so I am glad that it's warm and I am going out there and competing. We have a great field and I am looking forward to the competition."
