For the third successive competition, Jasmin Stowers lowered the world lead and her own personal best in the 100m Hurdles, this time at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Doha, Qatar, defeating a star-studded field in a time of 12.35, which also now stands as not only a Doha meeting record, but also as the fastest time ever run in Diamond League competition. The mark also makes Stowers the seventh fastest woman in history. Also running well, European Champion Tiffany Porter took third in an excellent 12.65.

In the Women's 1500m, IAAF World Junior Champion Dawit Seyaum defeated 2014's world number two woman, Sifa Hassan of the Netherlands, in a world-leading 4:00.96. In the Men's 3000m, Hagos Gebrhiwet made a long drive for home to beat out double Olympic and World Champion Mo Farah of Great Britain, 7:38.08 to 7:38.22. IAAF World Indoor Champion Ryan Whiting returned to the Diamond League podium for the first time in a year, taking third in the Men's Shot Put.
