0 166

South Africa’s Caster Semenya won the women’s 800m in imperious style as she cruised to gold on the closing night of the World Championships in London.

Semenya won the 2017 final in London on Sunday night in a time of 1:55.16.

Francine Niyonsaba of Burindi took silver and Ajee Wilson bronze for the United States, both blown away by Semenya’s astonishing acceleration in the final 50 metres.

Earlier in the week the reigning 800m Olympic champion won bronze in the 1,500m, her first major final in that longer event.

Semenya now has three World Championships golds to go with her two Olympic winner’s medals.

The dominant South African has also equaled Maria Mutola’s World Championships record of three 800m gold medals.
