Hurdler Andrew Pozzi is part of GB's 29-strong squad for the Athletics World Cup in London on July 14-15, live on Sky Sports.
The iconic Olympics Stadium will host the unique eight-nation event which will pit some of the sport's leading lights against each other as well as the right to pick up valuable points for their country.
Pozzi, Sky Sports Scholar and recently-crowned 110m hurdles British champion, is joined by long jumper Lorraine Ugen, high jumper Morgan Lake and 200m sprinter Beth Dobbin who all won gold at the national championships in Birmingham.
"The World Cup is a key competition in my preparation for Berlin and the European Championships," Pozzi said.
"In the iconic London Stadium against some of athletics' strongest nations it will be a great weekend of athletics. Every occasion to pull on a GB vest is an honour and one that I really look forward to."
Commonwealth hammer gold medallist Nick Miller and Wales' former world 400m hurdles champion Dai Greene who has just returned from a long-term injury are also included.
Newcomers include Jemma Reekie, European junior 1500m champion, European U23 100m champion Ojie Edoburun, and European junior triple jump bronze medallist Naomi Ogbeta.
The GB team will be up against the United States, South Africa, Poland, France, China, Germany and Jamaica at the 2012 Olympics venue.
All track events up to and including the 1500m will take place alongside all field events and two evenings of straight-final action will conclude with one nation being crowned champions.
At stake is the $2m prize fund and the prestigious Athletics World Cup 'Platinum Trophy' which will be awarded for the first time to the winners on Sunday night.
Coverage of the Athletics World Cup is available on July 14/15 beginning at 7pm on Saturday - you can watch on Sky Sports Action and Main Event while it will also be available to all Sky customers on Sky Sports Mix, channel 121
Sunday's climax will be available on the same channels, with Mix and Action covering the event from 7pm and Main Event viewers joining from 8pm
