Jamaica International Invitational, a silver event in the World Athletics Continental Tour Series, could be staged in September.

Dr Warren Blake, chairman of the organizing committee, said with the reopening of the Diamond League Series, a limited way, they are hoping for a September date.

“We are hoping that we may be able to stage a meeting in early September.

“We haven’t gotten a firm date as yet,” Dr Blake said on Radio Jamaica.

In March, the organizers, in a release, said because “the COVID-19 pandemic is still not under control in numerous countries including Jamaica” postponement was the best option.

“The organizing committee has decided to postpone the meet that was scheduled for 2 May 2020,” the release stated.

World 100m champions Christian Coleman and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce were some of the stars announced for this year’s staging.

World record-holder Kendra Harrison (100mH) and Dalilah Muhammad (400mH), along with Olympic champions Elaine Thompson and Shaunae Millier-Uibo and World 200m champion Noah Lyles were also down to compete.

It is not clear if these athletes will be available if the meet goes ahead in September.
