Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Mo Farah will be among the athletes set to compete at the London Anniversary Games.
The event takes place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford , the scene of the glory days of London 2012.
The event takes place from Friday, July 22-23.
One of the most iconic moments in the Olympic Stadium was Jessica Ennis-Hill winning gold in the women’s heptathlon. She’s set to return on both days to take part in the 100m hurdles and the long jump.
The athlete has been on strong form since her return to action, having won the heptathlon at the IAAF Combined Events Challenge in Ratingen in July with a score of 6,733, her best tally since London 2012.
She said: “I have been very selective about my competitions, but due to the very strong field in the 100m hurdles in London, my coach and I felt it was good to have a fast race before heading to the training camp for Rio.
“I love running the hurdles and know there is a quicker time in me this year.
“The competition at the Müller Anniversary Games will be tough, so I am banking on a good crowd to lift me to run a good time.”
Six-time gold medallist Usain Bolt allayed fears that he would not be fit for Rio 2016 by confirming his involvement in the Anniversary Games and is scheduled to race in the 200m on Friday.
This came after he sustained a grade-one hamstring tear at the Jamaican National Championships.
Mo Farah will also be keen to repeat his London 2012 triumph by racing in the 5,000m on Saturday for the first time since his gold medal victory four years ago.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mo Said: “Racing in the Olympic Stadium is always amazing and I can’t wait to get back to London for the Muller Anniversary Games.
“This will be my final race before the Rio Olympics and I want to give my home fans a day to remember.”
