IAAF announces from 2020 onward, 3000m will be the longest event in Diamond League races

Just as the title says, from 2020 onward, there will no longer be 5,000m or 10,000m races in Diamond League events. I assume this is to appeal more towards the general public who may not find these distances exciting.

Thoughts?

    distance races bore the average fan to death. Who other than the distance runners themselves wants to watch athletes run 25 laps?

    Smart move IMHO

    yeah I think there is none. Especially when you compare them to all the regular joes who partake in weekend sprint races year round and have an entire industry devoted to them.
