Newsclip®: [Sports] Semenya on the rebound in Olympic year -- NationNews Barbados -- Local, Regional and International News

"RABAT – South African Caster Semenya continued her impressive build-up to the Olympics Games with a comfortable success in the women’s 800 metres to mark her out as a strong favourite for gold in Rio de Janeiro as Africa hosted its first-ever Diamond League meeting on Sunday. The 25-year-old, who had to undergo gender testing before being cleared to compete as a woman after winning the world championship in 2009, powered through a strong field, including two other former world champions, in a time of one minute 56.64 seconds, loping to victory after easing ahead of the rest down the final straight. It was the best time of the year and a second successive Diamond League win this year for Semenya, who also has plans to run the 400m in Rio.",
