Olympic medallists Muhammad, Lyles and Benjamin set to star at New York Grand Prix

Olympic medallists Dalilah Muhammad, Noah Lyles and Rai Benjamin will be among the athletes in action when the New York Grand Prix takes place as part of the World Athletics Continental Tour Gold series for the first time on 12 June.
The competition will be a key part of the journey for many athletes targeting the World Athletics Championships Oregon22, where defending her world 400m hurdles title will be Muhammad’s aim. The US athlete set a world record of 52.16 with her gold medal-winning run in Doha in 2019 and then secured silver at the Olympic Games in Tokyo behind her compatriot Sydney McLaughlin, who improved the global mark to 51.
