The 25-year-old enters the race full of confidence, but he will be well tested by the Americans who are looking to resume their season after a break due to the World Athletics Championships 2022 in Oregon.

Leading the way is Jonah Koech, who will be looking to bounce back from a disqualification at the world championships recently. He will be joined by Isaiah Jewett and Isaiah Harris who are both capable of winning the event on their best day.
