Ana Guevara, the 2003 World Champion and one of the most popular athletes in Mexico’s history, will compete at the adidas Track Classic on May 20, organizers announced today.

The adidas Track Classic will begin at noon PDT on May 20 at The Home Depot Center, on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills, and will be broadcast live on ESPN from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. PDT (4 p.m.-6 p.m. Eastern).

Guevara, 30, is a three-time World Championship medalist, adding a bronze in 2001 and in 2005 to her gold from 2003. The Mexican national icon, who also owns a silver medal from the 2004 Olympics, has three times been ranked #1 in the world at 400 meters. She is also famous for her phenomenal 28-meet, three-year winning streak that lasted from August 2001 to July 2004. A last-minute illness forced her to cancel plans to compete here last year.

Also set for the adidas Track Classic is Juan Luis Barrios, the Mexican national champion at 1500 and 5000 meters. Barrios is known in southern California for winning both the 1500- and 5000-meter races at the 2006 Mt. Sac Relays, and earlier this month he finished second in the Carlsbad 5000.

They join previously announced athletes Allyson Felix, the reigning 200-meter World Champion; and Tyson Gay, the fastest 100m-200m man in history. More Olympic and World Championship medalists will be announced soon.
