World Athletics Championships: Caster Semenya takes second 800m world title

Oliver Dickson Jefford | Caster Semenya showed why she was perhaps the heaviest favorite in any event at the World Athletics Championships on Sunday, running a new personal best of 1:55.16 to take gold in the Women’s 800-meters.

Melissa Bishop, the silver medalist two years ago, finished in fifth place, with Angelika Cichocka in sixth and Charlene Lipsey in seventh.

Semenya proves too strong for the competition There was no doubt that Semenya was an enormous favorite heading into this final, and that was undoubtedly justified as she proved too strong for both Niyonsaba and Wilson in the final 100m. The race got off to a fairly quick start, and unsurprisingly it was natural front-runners Niyonsaba and Wilson who went straight to the front, with Semenya, Wambui, and...
