Holly Bleasdale has another crack at the queen of the pole vault in Stockholm tonight. Two weeks ago in Bydgoszcz, Poland, the 20-year-old Briton cleared the same height as Yelena Isinbayeva, 4.68m, but was beaten by the Russian Olympic champion on countback.

The XL Galan meeting also pits Cardiff's Joe Thomas against former Olympic 800m champion Yuriy Borzakovskiy of Russia, while Yamile Aldama contests the triple jump, Helen Clitheroe the 1500m, Shana Cox the 400m and JJ Jegede the long jump.
