Former Olympic and World champion Caster Semenya is the headline act for the return of the BAM Ireland Cork City Sports.
The event will take place on July 5 at the MTU stadium in Bishopstown. The event makes it return after a two-year absence due to Covid restrictions and this will be the 69th edition.
Ireland’s rising star Sarah Healy will be in competition with two-time Olympic and three-time world champion Semenya in the 3000m event.
The event is a World Athletics Continental Tour (WACT) Bronze meeting and as a result athletes will receive higher ranking points towards qualification for major championships.
This year the meeting is within the qualification window for the European Championships in Munich in August.
