    In addition to a $10,000 victory bonus for the Tour winner in each discipline, the winner will also receive a wildcard for the 2022 World Indoor Championships in Belgrade.

  2. Who should I look out for?

    This event will mark Dina Asher-Smith’s international return to athletics alongside many of the world’s best track and field stars. Asher-Smith has not competed at an indoor event since 2018.

    The reigning world 200m champion and Olympic medallist will compete in the 60m as she continues her preparation for a medal charge at the Tokyo Olympics later this year. Fellow Briton Andrew Butchart will feature in the distance events.
