After winning the 800m at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Lausanne earlier this month, the Botswana’s Olympic medalist Nijel Amos will be looking to continue his rich vein of form tonight at the Stade Louis II in Monaco.

Amos beat the 800m Olympic champion and world record-holder, David Rudisha in Lausanne. With the absence of Rudisha in tonight’s race, he aims for yet another victory. Mohammed Aman from Ethiopia is the only person in the entry list who poses a threat to the Botswana international.
