Olympic champion Marcell Jacobs will race head to head with Canada’s Andre de Grasse the bronze medallist. It will be an interesting race as Jacobs has yet to compete in the Diamond League in 2022 and de Grasse has not been performing to his usual standard.
The women’s 400m hurdles will see the Netherlands’ Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist Femke Bol to the line. Bol will face off against new British champion Jessie Knight, as well as Ukraine’s Anna Ryzhykov.
Sydney McLaughlin’s set the gauntlet last week with a new world record during the USATF Trials last weekend with her 51.41 performance.
Meanwhile, Bol has a personal best of 52.03. In Stockholm, Bol will face off against new British champion Jessie Knight, as well as Ukraine’s Anna Ryzhykov.
The schedule begins with the women’s shot put at 17:47 local time and ends with the men’s 800 metre at 21:51.
