|Chinese high jumper Zhang Guowei (right) and 110m hurdler Xie Wenjun share a light moment during the press conference for the 2017 IAAF Diamond League in Shanghai yesterday. — Dong Jun
AT least 13 Rio Olympic track and field champions have confirmed their participation for the 2017 IAAF Diamond League on May 13 in Shanghai http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-carlos-lee-jersey/ , organizers announced yesterday.
The Shanghai leg, serving as the second stop of the 14-leg Diamond League, will feature 16 items — nine for men and seven for women. Six Chinese athletes will vie with the world’s best for the honors.
China’s Xie Wenun will line-up in the men’s 110-meter hurdles — the traditional closing event here — with world indoor champion and Rio gold medalist Omar McLeod. The Jamaican will be looking to show his early season form as he gears up for a tilt at the world title in London in August. Xie and McLeod will hope to outrun Rio silver medalist Orlando Ortega in the event.
“I didn’t set any specific goal for myself so there won’t be any pressure http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-carlos-correa-jersey/ ,” Xie said yesterday. “There is a national meet and World Championship this year. Shanghai runners have always dominated the 110m hurdles and I hope to keep that momentum going.”
Xie was referring to local Olympic and world champion Liu Xiang.
Chinese sprinter Su Bingtian and Rio silver medalist Justin Gatlin will compete in the 100m. The American is the defending champion.
David Rudisha, Kenya’s 800m world record holder, will look for some early pointers three months ahead of his world title defense. In other men’s track events http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-carlos-beltran-jersey/ , Rio champion and 2016’s fastest one-lap hurdler Kerron Clement of the US will compete in the 400m hurdles. Panamanian sprinter Alonso Edward will lead the 200m field which also has China’s own national record holder and world relay silver medalist Xie Zhenye.
The men’s field events have some intriguing match-ups. Canada’s world and Olympic champion Derek Drouin will take on China’s world silver medalist Zhang Guowei in high jump.
“Drouin and I know each other very well,” Zhang said. “It’s just about who finds a better form. My goal is to reach 2.3 meters.”
In pole vault, Brazil’s Rio hero Thiago Braz faces France’s world indoor record holder Renaud Levillenie and China’s Xue Changrui.
The women’s events are equally star-studded. Jamaica’s Rio champion Elaine Thompson will make her Shanghai debut in the 100m. Another Rio gold medalist Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas will take on her Jamaican rival Stephanie McPherson in the 400m.
Croatia’s Olympic discus champion Sandra Perkovic will be seeking her fourth victory at Shanghai Stadium http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-brian-mccann-jersey/ , while China’s Gong Lijiao will hope to reproduce the crowd-pleasing form that saw her defeat a world-class field to win the shot put contest two years ago.

BANGKOK, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- A dozen military commanders have been named ministers under an interim government headed by non- elected Premier Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha.
The Thai monarch, King Bhumibol Adulyadej http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-andy-pettitte-jersey/ , approved on Saturday the naming of those high-ranking military officers, who are either currently active or retired, as members of cabinet in charge of varied portfolios headed by Gen Prayuth http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/astros-alex-bregman-jersey/ , the army strongman who seized power from a civilian government in the May 22 coup.
However, an official list of the cabinet members, handpicked by Gen Prayuth http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/hats/ , was only available in the Royal Gazette on Sunday.
Several are among the military junta who joined hands with Gen Prayuth to topple the elected government earlier headed by deposed premier Yingluck Shinawatra and currently sit on the National Council for Peace and Order, the official name of the ruling junta.
They make one-third of a total of 32 members of Gen Prayuth's cabinet with the rest mostly being high-level civil servants, who are as well either currently active or retired.
The military commanders have been invariably viewed as "cronies " of the strongman-turned-premier http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/t-shirts/ , who recently called on members of the public and the press to "not pay too much attention on individuals" in his cabinet and admitted that he decided to have them help run the country because he personally trusts them.
They are legally allowed to assume cabinet seats in a concurrent fashion under an interim constitution enforced by the ruling junta.
The military commanders who have become members of Gen Prayuth' s cabinet include
-- Former army chief and former defense minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan: Deputy Prime Minister-cum-Minister of Defense. Gen Prawit, viewed as an influential former superior to Gen Prayuth, earlier assumed the defense portfolio in the time of former premier Abhisit Vejjajiva.
-- Supreme commander Gen Tanasak Patimaprakorn: Deputy Prime Minister-cum-Minister of Foreign Affairs.
-- Deputy army chief Gen Udomdej Sitaboot http://www.baseballastrosprostore.com/hoodie/ , who is tipped to be promoted as army chief in place of Gen Prayuth: Deputy Minister of Defense.
？-- Air force chief ACM Prajin Juntong: Minister of Transport.
-- Navy chief Adm Narong Pipatanasai: Minister of Education.
-- Assistant army chief Gen Paiboon Khumchaya: Minister of Justice.
-- Assistant army chief Gen Chatchai Sarikalya: Minister of Commerce.
-- Former army chief Gen Anupong Paochinda: Minister of Interior.
-- Former deputy army chief Gen Davapong Rattanasuwan: Minister of Natural Resources and Environment.
-- Defense undersecretary Gen Surasak Kanchanarat: Minister of Labor.
-- Deputy army chief-of-staff Lt Gen Surachet Chaiwong: Deputy Minister of Education.
-- Former police chief Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew: Minister of Social Development & Human Security.
