Schedule for Jamaicans at Birmingham DL on Sunday

Jamaica’s two-time Olympic gold medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce  to face off with Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo  of The Bahamas in the women's 200m.

Jamaica’s two-time Olympic gold medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to face off with Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo of The Bahamas in the women's 200m.

With the IAAF Diamond League finals just weeks away, 14 Jamaicans are scheduled to compete at the 11th meeting of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League, in Birmingham on Sunday.

The women’s 100m hurdles will be one of the most intriguing events of the meeting.

Not only does it pitch three of the seven fastest women of all time against one another – including world leader Danielle Williams of Jamaica and world record-holder Kendra Harrison of the USA– but there will be a fierce battle for the two remaining spots in the IAAF Diamond League final.

Williams, Harrison, Tobi Amusan and Christina Clemons are among the six women who have already done enough to book their place in the Brussels final, but will still be racing in Birmingham. For them, the most important aspect of this race will be to gain a psychological advantage over their opponents ahead of the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019.

The likes of two-time world indoor champion Nia Ali, USA’s Queen Claye, Jamaican duo Megan Tapper and Janeek Brown are among those vying for the seventh and eighth lanes in the final.
