A pair of Americans who medaled at the London Olympics are among the featured athletes at this year's New Balance Indoor Grand Prix.

Jenn Suhr, who won gold in the pole vault in London, won her first national title at the New Balance event in 2005 and is the world's top-ranked pole vaulter. She set an American record at last year's New Balance Indoor Grand Prix (16 feet, watch a video of the performance below).

“My first big performance of 2012 was in Boston and the year turned out to be my best ever,” said Suhr in an event press release. “So I can’t wait to come back to Boston and start off this World Championships year with one of my favorite crowds.”

Galen Rupp, who won silver in the Olympic 10,000 event, headlines the men's field.

The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix will be held Feb. 2 at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center at Roxbury Community College. Tickets or meet info available on the event web site.
