Caster Semenya has claimed yet again another 800 metres World Championships gold medal making South Africa proud.
Semenya did not just win the 800m title at the IAAF World Championships in London on Sunday night but also set a new South African record of 1:55.16, beating her previous best time by more than a tenth of a second. She is also the fastest 800m time this year in the world.
At the age of 26, Semenya has collected two World Championships gold medals to go with her two Olympic winner’s medals (gold and silver). She also has a number of gold medals which she collected during the African Championships. Semenya’s next plan is to beat the 800m world record of one minute, 53.28 seconds, set by Jarmila Kratochvilova in 1983.
