Caster Semenya officially cleared to compete! (ABOUT TIME!)
The International Association for Athletics Federations officially cleared 19-year-old South African runner Caster Semenya for competition in the women’s division.
After 11 months of “gender testing” the world champion runner’s clearance takes “immediate effect,” reports the Associated Press.
The test results will remain confidential and the matter of her gender will not be questioned again. She will begin her comeback in Europe before competing at the African championships in Kenya, which begin July 28.
