U.S. Olympic Trials winner and world leader Trayvon Bromell will headline a strong men’s 100m field that also includes Canadian Andre De Grasse, and American Fred Kerley. Bromell will be hoping to bounce back from his first defeat of the season in Monaco last week. Jamaican double sprint champion Elaine Thompson-Herah will lead a solid women’s 200m field, despite world champion Dina Asher-Smith withdrawing due to a minor injury.
Elsewhere, British heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson will test her fitness level at the Olympic Stadium in London. The world champion who is slowly making her way back after an Achilles injury, will compete in the women’s long jump against world champion Malaika Mihambo of Germany and Olympic bronze medalist Ivana Spanovic of Serbia.
Please also keep an eye on the women’s 400m hurdles where Dutch and European star Femke Bol will resume her rivalry with American Shamier Little. Bol has won the previous two meetings against the US athlete this season and needed to break 53 seconds to take the win on both occasions.
