South Africa's Caster Semenya a Trailblazer at Commonwealth Games

You know, sometimes when you are winning all the time you run out of emotions said Caster Semenya. "So this win is actually not about me but it's for all the African girls coming from the rural areas who don't believe this is possible". Semenya has won the 1500m and 800m, making her only the third woman to do so at a Commonwealth Games.
