Kovacs vs Crouser
NEW YORK (USA): Joe Kovacs and Ryan Crouser will renew their rivalry in the shot put at the NYRR Millrose Games in New York on Saturday. They threw 22.91m and 22.90 respectively to win gold and silver at the World Championships in Doha. Another standout clash features world champion Nia Ali against world record-holder Keni Harrison in the 60m hurdles. With Olympic champion Omar McLeod a late withdrawal due to injury, world champion Grant Holloway is the favourite in the 60m hurdles and world leader Demek Kemp will be looking to improve on his 6.50 world lead in the 60m against sub 9.90 sprinter Ronnie Baker. World champion Donavan Brazier contests his first 800m of the season and world 400m hurdles silver medallist Rai Benjamin makes his season’s debut in the 300m. Fresh from her 1:57.91 British 800m record in Glasgow, Jemma Reekie goes head-to-head with Germany’s Konstanze Klosterhalfen in the mile and Ajee’ Wilson faves fellow world finalists Natoya Goule from Jamaica and Ce’Aira Brown in the women’s 800m although Laura Muir is a withdrawal. Fresh from victory over 1500m in Dusseldorf, Norway’s Filip Ingebrigtsen will be aiming for victory in the Wanamaker Mile. Elsewhere, world indoor champion Sandi Morris makes her first major appearance of the season in the pole vault and Allyson Felix and Jamaica’s Briana Williams are among the standout entrants in the women’s 60m.
