Berlin hosts the European Championships next week as athletes look to show medal-winning form two years out from the Tokyo Olympics.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at five to watch in Germany this month.
Nafi Thiam (Belgium)
Katarina Johnson-Thompson will do her best to stop the Belgian but Thiam is likely to be too strong.
She has set new personal bests in the high jump, long jump and shot put this year and won the Hypo Meeting in Gotzis with a world-leading 6,806 points in May.
Sifan Hassan (Holland)
It clears the way for Muir to take her first major outdoor crown having won double European gold last year.
Hassan set a new 2018 world lead in the mile in London last month in four minutes 14.71 seconds.
Zharnel Hughes (Great Britain)
Trained by Usain Bolt’s former coach Glen Mills, Hughes ran 9.93 seconds in London last month and set a personal best of 9.91 seconds – the joint second fastest time by a Briton – in June.
British team-mates Reece Prescod and CJ Ujah remain in the hunt but Hughes is tipped for the crown.
Renaud Lavillenie (France)
He failed at 5.75m – the only height he attempted in Amsterdam two years ago – in a shock defeat having won the previous three European titles.
He is third in the Diamond League standings, the top European, and was second at the London meet last month.
Laura Muir (Great Britain)
Muir will run in the 1,500m after opting out of the 800m due to an Achilles problem that came to light following the London Diamond League meeting.
She will be looking to build on the bronze and silver she won at the World Indoors in March, with high expectations surrounding the 25-year-old.
