The Birmingham Diamond League is one of my favorites meets of the season. This is the first time I have missed a meetin BMX in a decade. Oh, just the curry alone gives me a moment to cry! The Alexander Stadium is a great facility to watch the best athletes in the world, and then, spend some time with your friends, what better way to spend a weekend in August?

The Birmingham DL is one of the most underrated DL meetings each season. This year, again, after a major Championships, Birmingham's timing is impeccabe. Spencer Barden, has again orchestrated fields that will shake up the cosmos. The 200 meters for Women, with the best women's sprint field of 2018, will be followed by the Men's 100 meters, the only race more hyped.

In this article, our long suffering traveling journalist, who I used to call a Scotsman but know better now, has discovered the secret to success in sprinting. Lucky for you, you are reading RunBlogRun, as we try to know all. Of course, our presumptious approach to athletics is only to serve our readers (or, to make them laugh). Thanks to Stuart Weir for his amazing discovery.
