Caster Semenya free to race as a woman despite investigation

SHARE Caster Semenya free to race as a woman despite investigation

Caster Semenya’s coach says the 800-meter world champion is free to

compete internationally despite an ongoing gender investigation


Michael Seme says he does not have details but learned from

Semenya’s lawyers that she can compete. Her lawyer, Greg Nott, was not

immediately available to comment.


IAAF spokesman Nick Davies says “we are still in the same position as

before – no official IAAF comment until we have finished the inquiry.”

Davies said he couldn’t say how long the inquiry will take.

Hours before the 800 final, the IAAF said it had ordered gender

tests to be conducted because of Semenya’s muscular build and rapid

improvement in times. Her future as a runner has been in doubt since.
