Bermuda set to host another major Track & Field meet
The island is again set to be the venue for a major international athletics meet after USA Track & Field announced the inaugural Bermuda Grand Prix as part of its outdoor season next year.
After the successful staging of the USATF Bermuda Games in April this year, the world’s top competitors from more than 20 countries will once again go head-to-head at the Flora Duffy Stadium, with the Grand Prix event scheduled for May 21.
It will be the second of seven outdoor meets confirmed on the USATF schedule and the only non-domestic venue alongside events in Arizona, Los Angeles, New York and Oregon.
“USATF is pleased to announce competitive opportunities for its athletes to secure qualifying marks and prize money, including a new Grand Prix series, as they prepare for the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary,” said the USATF in a statement.
