New York, NY (Sporting Alert) — Jeremy Wariner, Tyson Gay and Blanka Vlasic have been confirmed to compete at the 2011 adidas Grand Prix in New York in June.
Great Britain’s heptathlon world champion Jessica Ennis, will also compete at the meet.
Wariner, who won gold in the 400 meters at the 2004 Olympics and silver at the Beijing Games in 2008, is back with long-time coach Clyde Hart and is aiming to climb back to the top of the one lap event, after playing second fiddle to fellow American LaShawn Merrit at the last two majors.
Gay, in the meantime, is the 2007 World Championships sprint double gold medallist and also the silver medal winner over the 100m at the last championships behind Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, who went on to break the world record.
Croatian high jumper Vlasic, who is a four-time world champion, is set to make her U.S. debut at the June 11 meet.
