EDMONTON - Jamaican sprinters Yohan Blake and Veronica Campbell-Brown will headline the Edmonton International Track Classic on June 29 at Foote Field.

Blake, who won a 100-metre world title in 2011, won two silver medals and a relay gold at the London Olympics last year.

"I am very happy to be coming back to Edmonton and am looking forward to breaking the 10-second barrier in front of some of the best fans in the world," Blake said Monday in a release.

Blake won the 100-metre final last year in Edmonton with a time of 10.05 seconds.

Campbell-Brown will make her Canadian debut at the event, the third of five stops in the 2013 National Track League series.
