19 World champs to line up at Weltklasse

Organisers of Weltklasse say 19 world championships gold medalists will compete at the Diamond League meeting next week.

Usain Bolt leads a 100 metres line-up on August 29 featuring the top six finishers in the worlds final at Moscow last week.

High jump world champion Bohdan Bondarenko heads a Weltklasse entry that includes the top eight in Moscow. The Ukrainian almost broke the 20-year-old world record mark of 2.45 metres at the Lausanne Diamond League meet in July.

Weltklasse organisers say Ethiopian rivals Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba - the women's world champions over 5 000 and 10 000, respectively - will race over 5 000.

Weltklasse stages the first half of the season-ending Diamond League finals. Brussels hosts the remaining events September 6 at the Van Damme Memorial meet.
