Katie Nageotte, the Olympic pole vault gold medalist, will compete at Liévin for the second time. The American standout won the French match three years ago, clearing 4.62m.

Nageotte also competed in two global finals, placing fifth with 4.70m at the 2018 World Indoor Championships in Birmingham and seventh with 4.70m in the 2019 World Championships in Doha.
