                    Ms. Semenya clocked a national junior record of 2'00"58 at altitude in March then went into a phase of three months of hard training. Her desire was to simply break sub-2. Ms. Semenya is the 4th of 5 kids and runs at 64kg/170cm.

                      This deserves it's own thread!

                      What with Jelimo last year and now this.

                      I suppose if she runs to school everyday, like those talented Kenyans do, then it stands to reason such women can make impovements.....

                      :roll:

                        Semenya is also supposed to be running the 1500 in this meet. Her PR is 4:16.43. She's only 18 and will be eligible for next year's World Juniors.

                          Holy moly :shock:

                          This surely deserves its own thread.

                            I changed the title of the thread because I don't expect that many other performances of that level at the meet.

                              Ms. Semenya is from South Africa, not Kenya. When Ms. Semenya ran that 2'00"58 at the Yellow Pages meeting in Germiston in March, she took down Zola Budd's national junior record. It is really a remarkable achievement for Ms. Semenya, who failed to qualify for the World Junior final in Bydgoszcz last season.
