South Africa's fastest female athlete has returned to the track and reminded Mzansi why she is the best by setting a new national record for the 300m event.
Briefly.co.za learned that the multiple Olympic medal winner and world 800m champion won the Classic Shoot-out race at the University of Johannesburg last night in a time of 36.78.
Semenya has achieved the fastest times for the 300m, 400m, 600m, 800 and 1 500m distances.
This was the first time that she has competed in 7 months and was her first race after separating from her coach Samuel Sepeng.
