Thiam, KJT and Duplantis are also coming to Brussels!
Reigning Olympic Heptathlon Champion Nafi Thiam enters a triathlon against reigning World Champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson. They will compete in the 100m Hurdles, the Shot Put and the High Jump. In the Hurdles race they will be joined by Eline Berings and Anne Zagré.
“I am excited about the fact that the AG Memorial Van Damme does take place. When there is a competition to look forward to, that gives a true boost to my motivation. I can’t wait to step on the track on September, 4th for this special and challenging event”, says Nafi Thiam.
