Richards-Ross makes season debut next weekend
NEW YORK -- Sanya Richards-Ross will make her season debut at the Diamond League meet in New York City on May 25.
Richards-Ross is coming off a memorable 2012 season in which she captured the 400-meter title at the London Olympics and also helped the 1,600-meter relay to a win.
The 400 field at the Adidas Grand Prix is stacked with talent as 2008 Beijing Games champion Christine Ohuruogu of Britain and `11 world champion Amantle Montsho of Botswana also step into a lane.
Other track and field stars previously announced to the meet held on Randall's Island include Aries Merritt, Tyson Gay, David Rudisha and Veronica Campbell-Brown.
