The men’s heptathlon line-up features six of the top-10 finishers from the European Championships decathlon in Berlin including silver and bronze medallists Ilya Shkurenyov and Vitaliy Zhuk.

Great Britain’s Tim Duckworth (fifth), Norway’s Martin Roe (sixth), Czech Republic’s Jan Dolezal (eighth) and Sweden's Fredrik Samuelsson (ninth) are also part of the entry-list in the heptathlon along with world leader and 2016 European decathlon champion Thomas van der Plaetsen from Belgium and reigning European indoor silver medallist Jorge Urena from Spain.
