With 20.51 as a pb from last summer, gold from the World Championships in Eugene, silver from the World indoors the same year and the top ranking in the event, last year's winner of the Oslo Bislett Games Chase Ealey is the big name in the ring.
Canadian Sarah Mitton is the second best ranked of the participants. And with 20.33, she has a personal record nine centimetres better than Dutch Jessica Schilder, who is ranked third.
But in last year's World Championships it was Schilder who ended at the podium as a bronze winner, while Mitton was fourth.
Schilder also secured the European Championships gold last season, in addition to coming third in the World indoors, while Mitton won the Commonwealth Games ahead of another of the participants in this year's Oslo Bislett Games; Danniel Thomas-Dodd from Jamaica - who was the reigning Commonwealth champion from 2018 and is ranked number five in the world.
With 19.55 as a personal best, the silver medallist from the World indoors in 2018 and the World Championships in 2019 leads what on paper is group two in this year's event.
Closest to her is sixth-ranked Fanny Roos, with a personal record of 19.42 from last year. The Swedish girl's best international merit is a second place from the European indoors in 2021, while she was third in the European indoors this winter.
