Double Olympic 100 metres champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will go head to head with British sprint star Dina Asher-Smith at the Anniversary Games in London this weekend.
Jamaica’s Fraser-Pryce, 32, is returning to a happy hunting ground, having retained her Olympics 100m title in the London stadium in 2012.
Fraser-Pryce, who is returning to her best form after clocking a joint world-leading time of 10.73sec in Kingston in June, also faces world indoor champion Murielle Ahoure and world 200m champion Dafne Schippers.
British record-holder Asher-Smith, 23, set a season’s best time of 10.91sec in finishing second behind Fraser-Pryce at the Lausanne Diamond League meeting earlier this month.
In the women’s 200m, the star attraction is Elaine Thompson of Jamaica, who won a 100m and 200m sprint double at the Rio Olympics.
With the US trials for the world championships taking place the following week, no Americans will take part in either the men’s or women’s 100m at the two-day meeting, which is part of the Diamond League series.
The men’s 100m pits former Jamaican world champion Yohan Blake against Canadian star Andre De Grasse, who has struggled with illness and injury since winning three Olympic medals in 2016.
