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.

While both Aman and Amos have already faced each other in the past, much is expected from Amos who has been in top form this year. Points will be very important more than personal pride. Amos sits at the top with 10 points while Aman sits in third position with four points.
