The biggest stars in global athletics are in London this weekend. Action starts from 1pm on Day 2 of the Müller Anniversary Games and tickets are available.
Forming part of the worldwide IAAF Diamond League tour, this year’s Müller Anniversary Games promises two days of world-class action with British and international stars confirmed to compete along with no less than than six world champions – Wayde Van Niekerk (RSA), Sally Pearson (AUS), Karsten Warholm (NOR), Mutaz Barshim (QAT), Katerina Stefanidi (GRE) and Christian Taylor (USA) – from the London 2017 World Championships.
Sunday’s action (full timetable below) sees triple-European champion and British sprint star Dina Asher-Smith take to the track in her home city in the women’s 100m with the final scheduled for 3.50pm. Prior to that at 2pm Wayde Van Niekerk is set to compete over 400m at the Müller Anniversary Games in one of the most highly anticipated races of the weekend. It will be the first time Van Niekerk, the 400m world record holder, has raced in the London Stadium since his sensational 400m gold medal and 200m silver medal winning performances in 2017.
The men’s high jump takes place from 2.20pm where the star attraction is Qatar’s Mutaz Barshim. Barshim has a strong record in the Olympic Stadium winning a gold medal in the 2017 World Championships and an Olympic bronze medal in 2012.
In the men’s 100m hurdles final at 3.40pm GB hopes will rest on Andrew Pozzi while in the sand pit Stef Reid will be aiming to take the T44 – 64 women’s long jump title from 1.20pm and later on at 2.40pm it’s the turn of heptathlon star Katarina Johnson-Thompson in the women’s long jump.
A key meeting in the countdown to the World Championships later this year in Doha and the Olympic and Paralympic Games at Tokyo 2020, the Müller Anniversary Games is a great opportunity to witness some of the best athletes on the planet in action in the capital.
