Drake Relays officials announced the names of more than 50 elite athletes set to run the blue oval at the end of the month.

The field features 25 Olympic medalists from the 2012 Olympics ready to compete in several London rematches at Drake.

One of those rematches will include hometown girl Lolo Jones in the 100 meter hurdles, the event she fell just short of medaling in over the summer, coming in fourth.  Jones will be up against silver and bronze medalists Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells.

It’s no surprise Jones agreed to run the blue oval, she has run at the relays since her days at Des Moines Roosevelt.

Tickets are on sale for all days of the event which runs April 25th – 28th.
