World 110m hurdles champion David Oliver will compete at the Stockholm Bauhaus Athletics meeting on 30 July where he hopes to notch up his second victory at the IAAF Diamond League meeting.

After finishing second in Stockholm in 2005, 2008 and 2011, Oliver finally won in the Swedish capital in 2013 in what was his first race after winning the world title in Moscow.

This year, his race in Stockholm will be his last IAAF Diamond League appearance before heading to Beijing for the IAAF World Championships where he will defend his 110m hurdles title.

“I’m looking forward to competing at Stockholm Bauhaus Athletics this year,” said Oliver, who recently won his fourth national title. “The Diamond League meeting is always fantastic and I love the classic arena.”
