Semenya joins the Diamond set

Caster Semenya will compete at the Diamond League meet in Oregon on 4 June as she begins her international build-up to defending her 800m world title. She is also hoping to run at the Bislett Games in Oslo five days later.

Semenya won the 800m and the 1500m at the South African championships at the weekend after having been unable to compete at the 2010 nationals because of an enforced 11-month lay off after undergoing gender tests. The world championships are in Daegu, South Korea in late August.
