Semenya Grounded Until Gender Tests Conclude

The 800m specialist will have to wait to compete.

South African 800m world champion Caster Semenya will not be able to compete again until the IAAF concludes their gender verification tests. Athletics South Africa (ASA) released a statement today, saying that they would keep the young 800m champion away from competition until the test results became official. ASA released the statement in response to Michael Seme, Semenya’s coach, telling reporters earlier this week that she would compete as early as this Spring.
