Posted by on Jul 16th, 2010

What are the chances that Caster Semenya wins her first comeback race, after the whole she’s-a-man-debacle, in a place that has “peen” in the name.

I swear. True story.

“The 19-year-old South African won the 800m at the Lappeenranta Games in Finland in a modest time of two minutes, 4.22 seconds.

Semenya pulled away on the home straight to beat a weak field.The time was a long way off the 1:55.45 she clocked when winning gold at last year’s World Championships in Berlin.The African junior champion, though, was happy with her time after an 11-month absence from competition.

“To come and run a 2:04 is not easy, especially after what happened,” said Semenya” [BBC Sport]


One-legged sprinting is hot in Finland right now.
