Keni Harrison, who set 100m hurdles world record of 12.20* at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in London last month, will race at the first this season’s two IAAF Diamond League finals in Zurich on 1 September.

The famous Weltklasse Zurich meeting will give Harrison an opportunity to improve on her record after the disappointment, and surprise, of her finishing sixth at the US Olympic Trials and missing out on the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
