Actually, with the altitude, Semenya shows mid 15 5000m in this race, with a kick that beat a 15:04 runner by 8 seconds in the last 400m, plus 49/1:54/3:59, easily the greatest range of all time for a woman, although I have often wondered whether some of the taller, thinner female 400m runners could run well up the distance with some training. Semenya thus outsmarts Coe, but don't worry, Coe's secret plan for this eventuality was to cut out the 5000m and 10000m from Diamond League and then World and Olympic events.

High 49's for a 400 and low 16's for a 5k... Sounds extremely familiar. Like, the PRs of a decent high school XC/track boy.
No woman on Earth has/had a range that even remotely approaches this. Imagine Sydney McL, or even Ajee Wilson, in a 5k. Or how 'bout Hassan in the 400. It would be a disaster.
Caster is not a biological woman. Letting her participate in this race is peak clown world.
