Qualification for the Diamond League finals is the name of the game in Paris. Noah Lyles has been tipped as the next Usain Bolt – can the American continue to live up to that big billing?

Sprint sensation Noah Lyles has been tipped as the next Usain Bolt – can the American continue to live up to that big billing at the Paris Diamond League this weekend?

With the World Championships just over a month away, Lyles continues to fine-tune his preparations at the final regular-season Diamond League meeting of 2019.

Qualification for the season-ending Diamond League finals is the name of the game in Paris this weekend and Lyles is far from the only star on show.

Olympic triple jump champion Christian Taylor is also set to compete in France along with fellow reigning world champions, high jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim and pole vaulters Sam Kendricks and Katerina Stefanidi.
