NEW YORK -- Olympic gold medalists Aries Merritt and Brittney Reese will compete at the Diamond League meet in New York City next month.

The two Americans were added to the Adidas Grand Prix field on Thursday. Merritt won the 110-meter hurdles in London and later set a world record last year. Reese is the reigning Olympic and world champion in the long jump.

Other stars previously announced for the May 25 event on Randall's Island include Tyson Gay, David Rudisha and Veronica Campbell-Brown.
