Semenya wins 2000m race in Paris


On Tuesday the South Africa’s golden girl of the tracks, Caster Semenya, won the 2000-metres race at the Montreuil athletics in Paris.

The 28-year-old Semenya finished in 5:38.19 seconds ahead of Ethiopia’s Hawi Feysa and Adanech Anbesa

Semenya was competing in her first race since filing an appeal against the IAAF’s ruling to restrict testosterone levels in female runners.

The IAAF ruling means she may have to change from her favoured 800m.
