European champion Armand Duplantis is to make his season debut in Düsseldorf alongside the two men he shared the pole vault podium with at the 2019 World Championships.

The Swede finished second at the event in Doha behind the United States' Sam Kendricks, with Poland's Piotr Lisek third.

The trio all recorded six-metre jumps last season.

Joining them in the field is hometown hero Bo Kanda Lita Baehre, who like Duplantis is just 20 years old.

Another athlete making his season debut is Poland's Adam Kszczot, who will headline the men's 800m race.

The reigning world indoor and European champion will be joined by the Bosnian Amel Tuka - a silver medallist at the 2019 World Championships - and fellow pole Marcin Lewandowski, among others. 

Nigeria's Tobi Amusan will start as the favourite for the women's 60m hurdles after improving her lifetime best to 7.84 seconds at the last event in Karlsruhe.

Germans Pamela Dutkiewicz and Cindy Roleder should receive plenty of support.

The 60m sprint should be popular as ever, with Americans Shania Collins and Brandon Carnes ones to watch in the women's and men's races respectively.

Kenya's Bethwel Birgen - a two-times 3000m winner on the World Athletics Indoor Tour already this season - looks set for a duel with Ethiopia's Selemon Barega, who is making his first appearance of 2020.

Kenya's Beatrice Chepkoech, who led the women's 1500m in Karlsruhe only to fall off into fourth at the death, has a chance to gain revenge also. 

Axumawit Embaye of Ethiopia - the winner of that race - and Ugandan runner-up Winnie Nanyondo are both scheduled to run in Düsseldorf.
