African speed queen, Caster Semenya created a new national record as she claimed victory in the women’s 1500m at the first Diamond League event of the 2018 season.
Semenya breezed past other athletes as she posted three minutes 59.92 seconds in Doha.
The 27-year-old, who is a two-time Olympic 800m champion, could be affected by new rules around testosterone levels in female runners. When asked about the ruling, Semenya said: “I don’t talk about nonsense.” Her country’s national athletics board, Athletics South Africa said on Thursday it would challenge the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) on the new rules. IAAF chief Lord Coe has since said that the rules, which will affect track events from 400m up to the mile, are “appropriate for the sport”.
