Currently the fastest man in the World, Christian Coleman and the 2017 World champion Ramil Guliyev will face off in the 200m at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial in Budapest on Tuesday, July 9.

Coleman clocked the fastest 100m time in the World this year of 9.81 seconds at the Stanford Diamond League on June 30.

The 2017 World 60m indoor champion, Coleman, holds 200m season's best of 19.97 seconds which is the 9th fastest performance this year. Meanwhile Guliyev has clocked 19.99 seconds and is the 10th fastest 200m performer this year.

"I know the track is fast so I want to go out there and get a personal best:" Said the 23-year-old Coleman, who set his personal best of 19.85 more than two years ago.

Also in the men's 200m field is Candian Aaron Brown, the 2-time World championships bronze medalist, who set his personal best of 19.95 seconds last Friday at Lausanne Diamond League. Earlier this year Brown took  convincing 200m victories at Shanghai and Stockholm diamond league meets.

The women's 100m hurdles will feature World record holder Kendra Harrison; the 2-time World indoor champion and Rio Olympics silver medalist, Nia Ali and Christina Clemons, the World indoor silver medalist.

Grant Holloway, the multiple NCAA champion, will headline the men's 110m hurdles. The 22-year-old Holloway clocked his personal best and World lead of 12.98 seconds when he won his 3rd straight NCAA 110m hurdles title in Austin last month.

The Olympic 400m champion, Shaunae Miller-Uibo from Bahamas, is entered in the women's 200m while her compatriot Steven Gardiner the World championships silver medalist will race the men's 400m.
