DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Officials with the Drake Relays have announced plans to hold an exhibition high jump inside of a supermarket.

Meet officials say they've already lined up eight high jumpers for a competition to be held on April 21 at a Hy-Vee store in nearby Waukee, Iowa.

The women's event will feature recent Olympic silver medalist Brigetta Barrett, 2013 meet champion Ruth Beitia of Spain and American record-holder Chaunte Howard-Lowe.

Canadian Derek Drouin and American Erik Kynard will headline the men's field.

Hy-Vee is the presenting sponsor of the meet, which will run from April 24-26.
