Women’s 100m - Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson, two members of the Jamaican powerhouse trio that swept the podium at the Tokyo Olympics and 2022 World Championships, will be in the field competing against Americans Aleia Hobbs (New Orleans, Louisiana), Sha’Carri Richardson (Dallas, Texas) and Tamara Clark (High Point, North Carolina).
Men’s 200m - After a surprising sixth place finish last weekend in Lausanne, 18-year-old world bronze medalist Erriyon Knighton (Tampa, Florida) will look for a bounce-back race in Brussels. His international competition includes Canada’s Aaron Brown, Reynier Mena of Cuba, and Liberian Joseph Fahnbulleh, who is coming off his collegiate career as a Florida Gator.
Women’s 100m Hurdles - Last weekend, Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the reigning Olympic champion, shattered a 34-year-old meet record to win the women’s 100m hurdles in Lausanne. Now she will attempt another act of dominance in Brussels. American Keni Harrison (Clayton, North Carolina), the silver medalist from Tokyo, will also be in the field.
Women’s 3000m Steeplechase - Emma Coburn (Crested Butte, Colorado) and Courtney Frerichs (Nixa, Missouri) will represent the Americans in the field. Coburn is a two-time world medalist (2017 and 2019) in this event and the 2016 Olympic bronze medalist. Frerichs took home the silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics and finished second at the 2017 World Championships in this event. 2022 World silver and bronze medalists Werkuha Getachew and Mekides Abebe are also in the field.
Men’s 400m Hurdles - Brazil’s Alison Dos Santos made history with his win at the 2022 World Championships, becoming the first Brazilian man ever to win gold at an outdoor track and field world championships.
