McGregor to Compete in DN Galen 5000; Dilling 7th in London with 7-3 1/4

Team USA Minnesota's Katie McGregor will compete at 5000 meters in Stockholm's DN Galen meet tomorrow. The former U.S. champion at 10,000m will use the race at the Swedish IAAF Super Grand Prix meeting to help put the final polish on her preparations for IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan where she will run 10,000m.

Startlists -- and then results -- for the DN Galen meet should go live shortly. You can find a link to the startlist/results page HERE.

Also ... Reigning USA high jump champion Jim Dilling of Mankato has begun his European tune-up for Osaka as well. Dilling finished 7th in the Norwich Union Super Grand Prix in London on Friday. The Minnesota State - Mankato grad cleared 7-3 1/4.

Sweden's Stefan Holm won the event at 7-7 1/4.

Update ... The startlists are up for DN Galen HERE. Dilling is competing in the high jump there where he will face Holm again. McGregor will see a lot of familiar faces in her 5000 -- five other Americans are running the race, including USA 10,000m champ Deena Kastor and Norwich Union 3000m winner Lauren Fleshman.
