Semenya wins Gold amid distracting rumours

Powerfully built but beautifully relaxed in motion, the 18-year-old South African clocked one minute, 55,45 seconds for the year's fastest time and a personal best by more than a second.

Kenyan world champion and Olympic silver medallist Janeth Jepkosgei was more than 15m adrift for second in 1:57,90. Fast-closing Jenny Meadows of Britain snatched third, three-hundredths of a second behind Jepkosgei in another personal best.
