• Caster Semenya Opens Season with new South African 300m Record

The 2-time Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya opened her 2020 season clocking 36.78 seconds setting a new South African 300m record. Semenya broke Heidi Seyerling's 20-year-old SA 300m record by 0.24 seconds.

Last year in May, Semenya lost her appeal against the rule that means middle distance female athletes with a high natural level of testosterone, must take medication to reduce it.

Semenya refused to take medication, as a result, she became ineligible to compete with women in her specialty event.

The World Athletics' former IAAF rule applies to the 400-, 800-, and 1,500-meter/mile events.
