The Meeting International Mohammed VI d'Athlétisme de Rabat is a yearly track and field event held at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, Morocco. This competition is part of the IAAF World Challenge Meetings and has been taking place since 2008. The event's name pays tribute to Mohammed VI, the current king of Morocco. In 2016, this meeting took the place of the Adidas Grand Prix in New York as part of the IAAF Diamond League season.
The upcoming Rabat Diamond League event in Morocco on May 28 is set to showcase a star-studded field of elite athletes, including Olympic and world gold medalists, vying for glory in various disciplines of athletics.
One of the highly anticipated showdowns will take place in the men's 100m race, featuring Marcell Jacobs, the Olympic 100m gold medalist from Italy, going head-to-head with Fred Kerley, the reigning world champion from the United States. This clash between two exceptional sprinters intensifies the competition for the coveted title of the "world's fastest man."
In the women's 200m, Shericka Jackson of Jamaica, who recorded the second-fastest time in history at the 2022 World Athletics Championships, returns to her preferred distance in Rabat after her impressive performance in the Diamond League opener, where she competed in the 100m dash.
Joining these exceptional athletes will be other notable names such as Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the Olympic champion from Norway, Steven Gardiner from the Bahamas, Emmanuel Korir from Kenya, Hansle Parchment from Jamaica, and many more. With such a star-studded lineup, the 2023 Rabat Diamond League promises to be one of the most thrilling athletics events of the year.
