The U.S. and Great Britain go head-to-head in a track and field meet on July 21 at the London Olympic Stadium.
“The Meet” will include nine running, jumping, hurdles and relay events and last two hours. Specific events and athletes will be announced early next year.
The U.S. topped the overall medal standings at every Olympics and world outdoor championships since 2004.
Great Britain is one of three countries to earn at least five medals at every Olympics and worlds since 2007, joining the U.S. and Kenya.
British athletes made six podiums at the just-completed worlds at the London Olympic Stadium, including in all four relays. The other two medals came from Mo Farah, who is moving to road racing and marathons after this season.
“The Meet” is similar to swimming’s “Duel in the Pool,” a biennial head-to-head competition between the U.S. and rival Australia from 2003 through 2007 and between the U.S. and Europe between 2009 and 2015.

Breakout star Adam Rippon is hysterical, the U.S. learned during these 2018 Winter Olympics.
From all of his best one-liners to fashion advice, to healing crystals, eating In-N-Out on rooftops and Xanax, check out every outrageous Adam Rippon moment:
He packed healing crystals – despite how heavy they made his luggage – for everyone on the team.
“They said, ‘Don’t pack too much,’ but I packed every healing crystal I could find,” said Rippon, according to a PyeongChang 2018 media release. “It’s quartz and quartz is very heavy and I have brought plenty of it for everyone.
“I’ll bring anything, it won’t hurt. It’s the Olympics. I threw some of them in my skates, in my bag.”
But of course, he still had to perform in the Games – and he delivered.
Rippon delivered a solid men’s free skate as part of the team event program. His performance was the third best, behind Canada and Olympic Athletes from Russia.
