Three athletes ranked No. 1 in the world will join an American world champ and another American making his pro debut at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix on Feb. 4 in Roxbury.

Mo Farah of Great Britain, ranked No. 1 in the 5,000 meters and an expected gold-medal contender at the Summer Olympics in London, will headline the event along with top-ranked Americans Jenn Suhr (pole vault) and Morgan Uceny (1,500 meters).

New Balance had previously announced that 1,500 meters world champ Jenny Simpson of the US will make her 2012 season debut at the event, and college star Matthew Centrowitz will make his professional debut.

Centrowitz was the NCAA and US outdoor champ at 1,500 meters.

The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix will be held at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center at Roxbury Community College. Tickets are available at nbindoorgrandprix.com or by calling 1-877-849-8722.
