Welsh athletes will be taking on some of the world’s best at Sunday’s Diamond League meeting in Birmingham. The latest leg of the international athletics roadshow features more than 60 global medallist, including 10 reigning Olympic champions, two Paralympic champions and 13 reigning world champions.
