South African Caster Se­menya, who daz­zled at last sum­mer’s world cham­pi­onships be­fore be­com­ing en­snared in a gen­der dis­pute, re­sumed her low-key re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion Sun­day. She won a sec­ond straight 800-me­ter race in Fin­land, in a time far slower than her world ti­tle run last Au­gust in Ber­lin.

She cruised to vic­tory at the Savo Games in her sec­ond race since she was cleared to con­tinue com­pet­ing as a woman. She fin­ished in 2 min­utes, 2.41 sec­onds — al­most two sec­onds faster than Thurs­day’s come­back race at the Lappeen­ranta Games. Still, she was seven sec­onds slower than her na­tional record of 1:55.45 at the 2009 worlds.
