NEW YORK -- Sanya Richards-Ross will make her season debut at the Diamond League meet in New York City on May 25.

Richards-Ross is coming off a memorable 2012 season in which she captured the 400-meter title at the London Olympics and also helped the 1,600-meter relay to a win.

The 400 field at the Adidas Grand Prix is stacked with talent as 2008 Beijing Games champion Christine Ohuruogu of Britain and '11 world champion Amantle Montsho of Botswana also step into a lane.

Other track and field stars previously announced to the meet held on Randall's Island include Aries Merritt, Tyson Gay, David Rudisha and Veronica Campbell-Brown.
