Prince Albert II of Monaco at the Herculis athletics meeting

This August 10th, 2022 took place the Herculis meeting at Louis-II stadium. The sovereign prince Albert II could not miss this great moment of sport in his Principality. The Herculis meeting takes place every year and is particularly scrutinized because it takes place shortly before the European Championships.


Prince Albert II is always present at major sporting events in the Principality

The Herculis meeting is part of the Diamond League of World Athletics. This championship takes into account the results of 14 meetings. The Herculis meeting, which took place this year on August 10, was the 10th meeting on the Diamond League calendar. The next three Diamond League meets will be held at the end of August and beginning of September in Lausanne (Switzerland), Brussels (Belgium) and finally Zurich (Switzerland).

This day is also an opportunity to gauge the level of the athletes, just a few days before the start of the European Athletics Championships. The World Championships took place at the end of July in Eugene, USA. Prince Albert II travelled to Oregon to attend this athletics championship.


This time, there was no need for Prince Albert II to cross the Atlantic. It is in the Louis-II stadium of Monaco that the athletics events of the Herculis meeting took place. The Dico du Sport notes the new feat of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won the 100 meters in 10.62 seconds. World champion Noah Lyles won the 200-metre race with a time of 19.46 seconds.
