South Africa´s Caster Semenya wanting to win 800m Gold for third time in Tokyo

Caster Semenya’s gender is still pretty much all anyone talks about when they talk about this powerhouse runner, however she was cleared to compete. Today Caster Semenya is looking forward to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where she aims to defend her 800m title and win it for the third and, perhaps, final time. "I’m an athlete who works more on short-term goals. Every month we see how we can improve our fitness, how we can improve our biomechanics and how we can improve our breathing."So, yes, Tokyo, I’m looking forward to it. "I’ll be 29, so it will be probably my last Olympics 800m. But yes, if I can still go faster, you never know where you can end up," Semenya says.
