• Hurdles - What's At Stake in Birmingham and Paris?

Birmingham and Paris will be the last chance for the world's top hurdlers to pick up points on the Road To The Final, and there is still much at stake as we approach the final bend. 

Birmingham: will see two of the undisputed stars of the women's 100m hurdles go head to head, as world record holder Kendra Harrison takes on Danielle Williams, the fastest in the world this year. Both Williams and Harrison are among the six athletes who have already qualified for the final, with Sharika Nelvis, Christina Clemons, Tobi Amusan and Elvira Herman making up the remaining four. 

Paris: Sergey Shubenkov and Orlando Ortega have both notched up two victories so far this season, meaning both of them can sit back and relax, knowing that their place in the final is beyond doubt (not that they will). Britain's Andrew Pozzi is also through thanks to a handful of podium finishes, while Omar McLeod would have to be very unlucky not to reach the final. After victory in Shanghai, the Jamaican's tumble in Rabat meant that he missed out on maximum points, and is still point or two short of qualification in fourth place.
