Some of the biggest Olympic and Paralympic stars are marking one year on from London 2012 with the Anniversary Games this weekend.

Three days of athletics are taking place in the Olympic Stadium in east London from Friday to Sunday.

We run down some of the big names to look out for...

Usain Bolt and James Dasaolu

The fastest man on the planet Usain Bolt is in the 100m on Friday at 21:48.

He's taking on rising British star James Dasaolu, who became the second fastest man in British history earlier this month when he ran 9.91 seconds at the British Championships.

Bolt may be the 100m world record holder, but his fastest time this year is only 9.94 seconds!

He'll be hoping to win again on the same track where he triumphed in the 5,000m and 10,000m last summer.

In a survey of children commissioned by Newsround, Mo came out as the most inspirational Olympian of London 2012.
