Adidas Grand Prix

The Adidas Grand Prix was an annual athletics meeting held at Icahn Stadium in New York City, United States. First started in 2005 as the Reebok Grand Prix, it was previously one of the IAAF Grand Prix events. It was part of the Diamond League competition through 2015. The IAAF announced on March 3, 2016, that New York would be replaced immediately by Rabat, Morocco, on the Diamond League tour.[1] Local organizers the same day said they would announce plans to carry on the meet as a street event in New York.[2]
