The 20 events forming the programme for July's IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final in London, Great Britain, have been announced.

Around 150 of the world's best para-athletes are set to line up at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 26 July for the event which takes place on the third and final day of the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games.

The IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final is the last major meeting of the 2015 para-athletics calendar before October's IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

The event, which coincides with National Paralympic Day and is part of UK Sport's Road to Rio campaign, marks the end to the 2015 IPC Athletics Grand Prix series which kicked off in Dubai, UAE, in February and included nine Grand Prix in five continents around the globe, from Australia to Brazil.

Ryan Montgomery, the Head of IPC Athletics, said: "There's no doubt the Sainsbury's IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final is one of the highlights of our para-athletics calendar, and this year I'm sure it will prove to be as thrilling as ever.

"These 20 events are bursting with talented para-athletes; world and Paralympic champions that will excel at such an iconic venue - indeed the stadium where so many remarkable memories were made at the London Games in 2012.

"For the fans who come to watch, there is something for everyone too - be it sprints, longer distance races, jumps or throws.

"It's important that we take every opportunity to showcase the diverse track and field talent international para-athletics has to offer, and I'm delighted that the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final will do just that."
