Organizers of the Aug. 19 Weltklasse meet said Thursday that Olympic and world champion Bolt will anchor a Jamaica team including Mario Forsythe, Yohan Blake, and Marvin Anderson.
Gay, the second-fastest man in history behind Bolt’s record of 9.58 seconds, heads a U.S. lineup featuring Walter Dix, Wallace Spearmon and Trell Kimmons.
Bolt and Gay are skipping the individual 200 at Zurich, which splits the Diamond League finals with Brussels the following week.
