Jamaica’s Olympic Games gold medallist Briana Williams and American Sha’Carri Richardson will face-off at the Meeting Città di Padova in Italy on Sunday (5 Sept).
Williams, who led off Jamaica to a historic 4x100m win at the Tokyo 2020 games, beat Sha’Carri Richardson in their last meeting at the Prefontaine Classic.
In Eugene, Briana Williams ran 11.09 for eighth while Richardson was dead last in the nine-athlete field, running 11.14 seconds.
Again, both will face-off in the women’s 100m, which also includes American Javianne Oliver and Anthonique Strachan of the Bahamas.
Jamaican Stephenie McPherson, who was stretchered away after finishing fourth in the Olympic Games final, returns to action. She joins another sub-50 runner Quanera Hayes of the United States, in the women’s 400m and Junelle Bromfield.
Olympic bronze medallist Ronald Levy is the favourite in the 110m hurdles. Gabbi Cunningham, Taliyah Brooks and Payton Chadwick are among the contenders in the 100m hurdles.
Lausanne winner Wilbert London leads the men’s 400m start list and home favourite David Re. Rusheen McDonald will also bet at the start.
American Marvin Bracy looks to continue his excellent form with Michael Norman and Ronnie Baker in the men’s 100. Norman is coming off a reasonably good 9.98 seconds clocking at the Brussels Diamond League meet on Friday.
Julian Forte and Justin Gatlin are also in the 100m.
Stewart McSweyn will be challenged by Michal Rozmys and Charlie Grice in the 1500m.
