Allyson Felix

World 400m champion Allyson Felix will compete at the Jamaica International Invitational, an IAAF World Challenge meeting, in Kingston on May 20.

The six-time Olympic gold medallist will be making her fourth appearance in the Jamaican capital. Her first came at the 2002 IAAF World Junior Championships, where she finished fifth in the 200m at the age of 16.

In recent years she has used the meeting as an early-season test of speed by contesting the 100m, finishing fourth in 2013 and third in 2015.

Felix is the latest top name to be announced for Kingston, joining the likes of Olympic 100m and 200m champion Elaine Thompson and world 100m hurdles record-holder Kendra Harrison.
