Former Jamaican sprinter queen Merlene Ottey will lead a small squad of athletes selected to represent Slovenia at the upcoming IAAF World Championships, which starts this weekend.

Ottey, who won her first individual medal at the championships in the 200m in 1983, has been selected to run in the women’s 100-metre dash, an event in which she has won four medals - two silvers and two bronzes.

The men’s dash will see European 100m bronze medallist, Matic Osovnikar taking on a star-studded field which will include favourite Asafa Powell, the Jamaican World record holder in the event and American inform sprinter Tyson Gay.

Osovnikar will also race in the men’s 200m, a race in which Gay stands out as the man to beat, after running a sizzling 19.62 at the U.S. Championships earlier this year.
