Alison dos Santos of Brazil and USA’s Rai Benjamin are the leading contenders for the gold medal while Norwegian Karsten Warholm, the world record holder and the defending champion is yet to complete a race this season after picking up a hamstring injury so we will have to wait to see how he will perform in Oregon. If he indeed competes.
