Birchfield Harriers' Nathan Morgan begins his preparations for the world indoor championships in Moscow in March with a head-to-head against Chris Tomlinson, the British long jump recordholder Chris Tomlinson, in Glasgow on January 28.
The rivals will clash in the five nations' international at Kelvin Hall when Morgan will run for a Commonwealth Select side and Tomlinson will represent Great Britain.
Ironically, despite being chosen for the visitors, Morgan does not intend defending his Games title in March.
That should add even more spice to his duel with Tomlinson, who could become his Commonwealth successor, with their past rivalry having produced some close results.
Tomlinson, fifth in the 2004 Olympic Games final, said: "After a hard winter's training I can't wait to compete in Glasgow and get some good jumps under my belt."
The Middlesbrough star added: "It will be great to compete against Nathan as we always try to push each other and I'm sure it will be a tough competition."
Tomlinson, plagued by injury in the last two years, remains a genuine contender for gold in Melbourne. He said: "I've been chasing a major medal for a few years now and I'm determined to give it my best in Melbourne."
