Jamaica's 100 meters world champion Yohan Blake is the first high-profile athlete to sign up for the opening Diamond League event in Doha, organizers said on Monday.
The meeting on May 10 in Qatar is the first of the 14 Diamond League fixtures.
"I am looking forward to going to Doha for my first Diamond League appearance on the Asian continent," Blake said.
Blake, 23, won silver in the 100 and 200 behind compatriot Usain Bolt at the London 2012 Olympic Games and was part of the world record-breaking 4x100 gold medal-winning Jamaican quartet.
