Newly-crowned European cross-country champions Ali Kaya of Turkey and Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands are to lead Team Europe’s challenge at next month’s Great Edinburgh International XC.

The duo, who struck gold in Hyeres last weekend, are among a 36-strong squad that will challenge Great Britain & Northern Ireland – featuring Mo Farah – and the United States in Holyrood Park on January 9.

The senior team also includes former European No,1s Fionnuala McCormack of Ireland and Spain’s Alemayehu Bezabeh.

Last year, Europe finished second overall as the USA claimed overall victory with the hosts third.
