Article source: Athletics
Sprinting legend Usain Bolt and 800m world record-holder David Rudisha will headline Thursday's Diamond League meeting in Zurich.
15 newly-crowned Olympic champions and 14 reigning world champions will line up at Thursday's competition.
 
David Rudisha will try to break the mark of 1min 40.91sec that he set in at the London Olympic Games. Like most in Rudishas races, Sammy Tangui will set the pace.
Other runners in this race,  Anthony Chemut, Timothy Kitum and Leonard Kosencha from Kenya. Ethiopian teenager Mohammed Aman, British duo Andrew Osagie and Michael Rimmer, and American Duane Solomon in what promises to be a fascinating race.
 
Bolt, again races in the 200m, coming off the back of victory in Lausanne earlier this month in 19.58sec, ahead of Dutch runner Churandy Martina and compatriot Nickel Ashmeade.
 
Yohan Blake will feature men's 100m, where he could again steal Bolt's thunder.
Blake shocked the crowed in Lausanne when he blazed to victory in 9.69sec shattering bolts meet record. Now Blake shares number 2 all time spot with Tyson Gay. 
 
Women's 100m race will see again a head to head competition between American Carmelita Jeter and Jamaican Shelly-Ann  Fraser-Pryce. Jeter has won Fraser-Pryce twice in a row after London Olympics. 
 
Britain's Mo Farah will be missing in men's 5000m race. But his training partner, Galen Rupp, is going to be running in a high-quality field arguably much tougher than that at the Olympics because countries are not restricted to just three entries.World season leader Ethiopian Gebremeskel Dejen will run Along side with Rupp and 18 other mostly African runners. Also, Bernard Lagat  a 2 time Olympic medallist in 1500m and  2007 world champion in 5000m race must be respected.
