World, Olympic and European pole vault champion Katerina Stefanidi will be joined at the Muller Grand Prix Birmingham by 2012 Olympic champion and world leader Jenn Suhr in heading up a stacked pole vault field at the IAAF Diamond League meeting on Sunday 18 August.

Stefanidi, currently world ranked No.1, achieved her first ever victory at an IAAF Diamond League meeting in Birmingham in 2014. The 29-year-old has now won the Diamond trophy in the women’s pole vault three years in a row.

In outdoor championships, she is undefeated since 2015 and set a Greek record of 4.91m on her way to gold at the IAAF World Championships London 2017.

Suhr, the 2012 Olympic champion and five-time global medallist, heads to Birmingham full of confidence having recently made the US team for what will be her sixth World Championships.

Suhr, who holds the world indoor record at 5.02m, cleared 4.91m in March this year to top the 2019 world list.
