RE: Go figuCaster Semenya remains undefeated - wins in Belgium in 2:01.86 - but won't be going to Worlds.
If that's the case, there must be something going on as to why she isn't going to worlds. Why would you miss worlds if you can time trial a flat 2 minutes (60-60) in lane one?!

I'll admit, I reckon she had high testosterone from testes not ovaries, the whole thing should have been handled better (totally as a science issue and not so public, don't know if the country federation is to blame here or what), as it fell into the trap of persecuting a young black woman in south africe, which confused all, and I'm not sure if results were released properly or what. But since that period (1:55 made to look easy), she's been a lot slower, despite having a great coach (Mutola) who arguably had the clean WR IMO (1:55s). If I remember correctly, Meadows was 4th in that WC event - I think she deserved a medal there. Constantly trying to chase impossible times led to her overtraining to injury and missing OG 12 (Surely they knew their competition is bogus).

This also leads me onto qual times - they should not take into account bogus WRs when setting standards - it should go from 1:54/5 and not JK's jk 1:53. 2:01.50 would be 6-7 seconds off WR IMO, they could set it at 7.5-10 seconds off rather than what 8 seconds off a bogus WR. Championship races tend to be slow and kick contests nowadays as well.
