Semenya claims historic Games 800-1500 double

Semenya claims historic Games 800-1500 double

Caster Semenya, who has long competed under a cloud owing to elevated testosterone levels that critics say give her an unfair edge, shrugged off the controversy to complete a Commonwealth Games double with victory in the women's 800m yesterday.

His Games record run of 8:10.07 was only Kenya's second gold of the Games to go with Wycliffe Kinyamal's win in the 800m.

Semenya‚ who won the 1500m earlier in the week‚ led from the front and was unchallenged as she stormed home first ahead of Kenya's Margaret Wambui and Natoye Goule of Jamaica.

There was disappointment for Australia's neighbours New Zealand when Valerie Adams failed in her attempt to win an unprecedented fourth consecutive shot put gold, but there was no disputing the quality of the track races. They both finished with silver.

Semenya won her first major 1500m title in style on Tuesday when she broke Zola Budd's 34-year-old record with a time of 4:00.71. Can she still takedown a mark that has stood for 25 years? "Today I left my heart out there".

"I've had to learn how to manage it myself, how to face the world".

"I can't be selfish anymore, it's not just me", Adams said. "We need to run about four championships in doubles and then we decide if we still have speed for 800 metres".

The night's last event, the women's 100m hurdles, was expected to be Australia's moment.

Urging his teammates on as he moved into lane two coming out of the final curve, Kipruto started his celebrations halfway down the last stretch and was followed in by Abraham Kibiwott.

World championships silver medallist Joshua Cheptegei won Uganda's third 10,000m title in succession also in a Games record of 27:19.62, while England's Katatrina Johnson-Thompson won the heptathlon.

Hughes ended on his hands and knees, exhausted and frustrated again.

"I've never done that before in my entire life - it was instinct", Hughes said of his dive. "The Kenyans just come in here and do whatever they want and no one ever tries to mess with their plans".
