I have great memories of competing in the Olympic Stadium in the summer of 2012 and in the previous Grand Prix meets in London. The British fans are always great and I expect there will also be a lot of Jamaican fans in the stadium. It will be amazing to put on another great show for them under the floodlights on the Friday night.” The Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games includes a two-day Diamond League meeting on , with the Sainsbury’s IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final taking place on Sunday 26th July.
