World champions Shericka Jackson and Femke Bol will be in Wanda Diamond League action in Stockholm on 2 June with the series champions set to compete at the BAUHAUS Galan.

Jamaican sprint star Jackson made Diamond League history last season, winning the 100m and 200m at the Final in Eugene.

Jackson, who won the 200m in Stockholm in 2021, has not yet confirmed which distance she’ll contest this year, but as a two-time world 200m champion and 100m silver medallist, she’ll be competitive at either discipline.

Dutch one-lap ace Bol has dominated the 400m hurdles on the Diamond League circuit in recent years, setting a meeting record of 52.27 in Stockholm in 2022. Fresh from her world-record-breaking world indoor 400m title, she will be aiming for a fourth Diamond League title and a first ever Olympic gold this summer.
