ZURICH (AP) Get ready for ''something crazy'' in the women's 200 meters on Thursday in Zurich.

Olympic champion Elaine Thompson and silver medalist Dafne Schippers will be in the Diamond League field alongside former gold medalists Allyson Felix and Veronica Campbell-Brown.

All four have times among the 15 fastest ever in the event.

Campbell-Brown, the 2004 and 2008 Olympic champion, says ''I know that we're going to have something crazy happening out there.''

Thompson, who won gold in Rio de Janeiro in 21.78 seconds, says it will be exciting to race against Felix, the American who was missing from the Olympic 200 field.
