What you need to know:

  • In the last event before the two-day Diamond League finals in Zurich on September 8-9, the men's 100m featuring Tokyo silver medallist Fred Kerley of the US will also be a highlight
  • Hassan will race the mile at the King Baudouin Stadium, a venue she knows well, having broken the one-hour world record there last year
  • The Ethiopian-born Dutch runner is also the world record holder in the mile and, given her sparkling form, it would take a brave person to bet against her winning once again
