The Aviva Series | Aviva London Grand Prix - 5-6 August 2011 | Crystal Palace

Global athletics stars are heading to the capital this summer to compete for glory at the Aviva London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace on August 5-6, 2011.

Last year's capacity crowd was treated to a feast of impressive performances from some of the world's best athletes and the line-up doesn't look like it's going to disappoint this year.

Spectators can expect a tasty show-down in the men's 110m hurdles as America's David Oliver takes on world record holder Dayron Robles of Cuba and Britain's Andy Turner.

The men's 400m hurdles looks equally exciting as British pair Dai Greene and Rhys Williams will be hoping to fend off a legendary athlete of this distance, the World and Olympic champion from the Dominican Republic, Felix Sanchez.

Ethiopian heroes Imane Merga, Dejen Gebremeskel and Sofia Assefa will be joined by Kenyan stars David Rudisha, Boaz Lalang and Vivian Cheruiyot.

Big name Brits competing include Mo Farah, Phillips Idowu, Mark Lewis-Francis, Christine Ohuruogu and Jenny Meadows who will be hoping home support can spur them on to victory.

But perhaps the biggest highlight of the event will be the men's 100m on the Friday night featuring the former world record holder Asafa Powell of Jamaica.

With stars from over 40 different countries set to attend this year's event, the scene is set for a feast of exhilarating global athletics action.

Away from the track there will be plenty of entertainment too, with games and refreshments for athletics fans of all ages to enjoy.
