Wilson and Cuba’s Luis Zayas will return to Banska Bystrica after their 1-2 finish last year. Both men cleared lifetime bests of 2.33m with Zayas winning on countback.

Thomas, who won the world championships title in 2007, will add flavour to the field. The field also includes world indoor bronze medallist Mateusz Przybylko and three-time US champion Jeron Robinson.

World silver medallist Yaroslava Mahuchikh will face fellow Ukrainian Yuliya Levchenko. The pair will line up in Banska Bystrica against 2014 world indoor champion Kamila Licwinko of Poland and Italian duo Elena Vallortigara and Alessia Trost. All of them have PBs of 2.00m or higher.

The Banskobystrická latka is a World Athletics Indoor Tour silver level meeting, but the men’s high jump contest will count towards the gold series scoring.

Italy’s 2016 world indoor champion Gianmarco ‘half shave’ Tamberi will take on 2020 world leader and European silver medallist Maksim Nedasekau of Belarus.
