Chanelle Price (Easton, Pennsylvania), a World Indoor Champion and 4x800m World Relay gold medalist, will compete in the 800m after having recently rabbited the Diamond League 1500m to a World-record setting finish.
 
The roster also includes Pan American silver medalists Tenaya Jones (Rowlett, Texas) in the 100mH and Shalaya Kipp (Boulder, Colorado) in the 3000 steeplechase.
