Israel, Rome, Måkestad and Jungmark set to participate in Zagreb meeting Tuesday...

ZAGREB, Croatia--Discus throwers Mårt Israel and Jarred Rome, along with middle distance runner Ingvill Måkestad and Ebba Jungmark are among the participants in Tuesday night's Boris Hanzekovic Memorial meeting, which is part of the IAAF World Challenge series of meets.

Rome and Israel both threw in Berlin on Sunday, where the Marysville native finished fifth at 207-1 (63.13m), and the former Husky from Estonia was seventh at 204-5 (62.32m).

Måkestad, coming off a season best in the 1500 of 4:04.12 in Rieti last Saturday, drops down in distance to the 800, where the former Husky is the Norwegian national record holder in the event at 1:59.82, set at this meet last year.

Former Washington State standout and 2008 NCAA indoor champ Jungmark faces off in the high jump against Blanka Vlasic, who is one of the meet's headline attractions.

Jamaica's Usain Bolt (100m), and Vlasic are the meet's headliners.
