Caster Semenya sigue imbatible en los 800 metros

La sudafricana Caster Semenya obtuvo este domingo su tercera corona mundial tras adjudicarse la carrera de 800 metros en el Mundial de Atletismo de Londres, obteniendo el oro.

Semenya, de 26 años, que logró el bronce en este Mundial de Londres en la prueba de mil 500 metros, había ganado sus dos anteriores oros mundiales de 800 metros en Berlín 2009 y Daegu 2011, tras la descalificación por dopaje de la rusa Mariya Savinova. Tras la también vigente campeona olímpica de la especialidad, entró la burundesa Francine Nyonsaba, que se quedó la plata en 1:55,92.

Asimismo, estarán este sábado en la pista las estadounidenses Ajee Wilson (1:59.21) y Charlene Lipsey (1:59.35), la polaca Angelika Cichocka (1:59.32), la beninés Noelie Yarigo (1.59.74) y conocida canadiense Melissa Bishop (1:59.56). "Berlín es mi segunda casa, pero éste es el lugar donde hay que estar", añadió la nueva campeona mundial que, en estos campeonatos, ya había sido plata en los 1.500 metros.
