After an immensely successful event last year, the world’s leading pole vaulters will once again compete in Zurich’s Main Station on the eve of the main Weltklasse competition, the first of two IAAF Diamond League finals, on Wednesday 23 August.

Olympic champion Ekaterini Stefanidi, world champion Yarisley Silva, Swiss record-holder Nicole Büchler and world U20 champion Angelica Moser all plan to fly high and treat spectators to another fascinating show.

Once again, the main hall of the busy railway station will provide an impressive backdrop for the prelude to the legendary Weltklasse Zürich meeting on the eve of the IAAF Diamond League final event at Letzigrund Stadium.

One day later, on Thursday 24 August, the best male pole vaulters will gather at Zurich’s Letzigrund Stadium. Their competition will be one of 16 high-profile IAAF Diamond League finals.
