If you’re having Olympics withdrawals, you can soothe some of it by tuning into the Diamon League in Zurich. Caster Semenya will be in action at 21:02 on Thursday night. The meeting is scheduled to air on SuperSport 5.

It’s Semenya’s first race since clinching gold in a personal best time at the Rio Olympics. Semenya needs just two points to win the Diamond Trophy and will do so if she wins the race. Burundi’s Francine Niyonsaba is Semenya’s closest rival and if she wins the race, the trophy will go to her.

South Africa have three other athletes competing at the meeting with Akani Simbine running the men’s 100m, Wenda Nel in action in the women’s 400m hurdles and LJ van Zyl running the men’s 400m hurdles.
