Martinot-Lagarde returns to Monaco – IAAF Diamond League

Pascal Martinot-Lagarde will return to Herculis, the scene of his French record of 12.95 in 2014, to compete in the 110m hurdles at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Monaco on 15 July.

The 24-year-old was victorious two years ago at the Stade Louis II and went on to win that season’s Diamond Race.

Martinot-Lagarde won the European indoor title in 2015 and earlier this year took his second successive world indoor silver medal.

As the second-fastest European of all time, he has now set his sights on Colin Jackson’s continental record of 12.91.
