Ath­let­ics SA pres­i­dent Aleck Skhosana raved about Semenya’s great sea­son. “We’ve run out of words de­scrib­ing the in­cred­i­ble sea­son Caster is hav­ing,” he said. “She has not let any­thing dis­tract her from her goals and she has been tear­ing one na­tional record af­ter an­other and that’s got to be ap­plauded and cel­e­brated. We con­grat­u­late her, her coach and all those who have had in­flu­ence in this achieve­ment.”
