Mo Farah is returning to the track
Briton Mo Farah will return to the track for the first time since 2017 in a bid to break the men's one-hour world record at the meeting in Brussels on 4 September.
The 37-year-old, winner of multiple world and Olympic titles, will aim to better Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie's 13-year-old record of 21.285km.
European 10,000m silver medalist Bashir Abdi will line up against Farah.
Ethiopia's Ababel Yeshaneh and Birhane Dibaba will go for the women's record.
That mark of 18.517km was recorded by their compatriot Dire Tune in 2008.
The one-hour run is where athletes try to cover as much distance as possible within one hour.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Britain's world heptathlon champion, will look to finish higher than Olympic champion Nafi Thiam once again when they compete in a 'triathlon' contest featuring 100m hurdles, shot put and high jump.
