    First stop is the start of the IAAF Golden League on Friday, 15 June at the ExxonMobil Bislett Games, Oslo, Norway, and then Defar will turn her attentions to the Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic, an IAAF Grand Prix, on Wednesday, 27 June.

    “These two meets Oslo and Ostrava are two of the most important races before the World Championships in Osaka. They could give me a lot of confidence in my preparation,“ said Defar.
