OTTAWA - Jamie Adjetey- Nelson of Windsor, ON and Jessica Zelinka of Calgary, AB will take to the international stage this weekend at the prestigious Hypo-Meeting, in Götzis, Austria. 

Annually the Hypo-Meeting features a who’s who in the 7-discipline heptathlon and 10-discipline decathlon with this year being no exception.  Lining up alongside 2008 Olympic Games 5th place finisher Jessica Zelinka are 2008 Olympic bronze medallist Tatyana Chernova of Russia, 2008 Olympic gold medallist Natallia Dobrynska of the Ukraine and 2009 World Champion Jessica Ennis of Great Britain. 

In the decathlon Jamie Adjetey-Nelson will take on a number of the world’s best decathletes including 2009 World Champion Trey Hardee of the United States.  Adjetey-Nelson enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2010 which was crowned with gold at the Commonwealth Games.  He’ll look to parlay 2010 into an even better 2011 season and it all starts at this prestigious competition and his first Hypo-Meeting
