Semenya's Olympic dream could be shattered, yet to qualify for Tokyo games
In more on the incredible athlete, Briefly News previously reported that Caster Semenya's chances of qualifying for the Olympics in Tokyo are getting slimmer by the day after the cancellation of this year's African Athletics Championships.
According to Inside, Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, last month agreed that Lagos would host the event, but Nigeria’s authorities have intervened to say the Championships now cannot be hosted as planned due to the global pandemic.
The games have painstakingly been rescheduled a few times, with Lagos the last option. It's certainly the athletes who've been left the most disappointed as the games were meant to assist those who had not yet qualified for the Olympics, including Semenya.
As previously reported by eNCAA, Semenya's final hope to qualify is a Cape Town event starting this weekend, which is likely to host a 3 000m and not her preferred 5 000m race.
