Allyson Felix among track stars set for meet spanning three continents

Allyson Felix will race 150m against Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo, each on opposite sides of the U.S., in a July 9 meet that will include at least 30 athletes spread across three continents.

The “Inspiration Games” is an exhibition team event held by Diamond League organizers for a meet usually held in Zurich, Switzerland, that has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The meet will include 30 “superstars” among eight disciplines spanning seven stadiums.

The format: a series of three-way clashes among Europe, the U.S. and “Rest of the World” teams.
