'Supernatural' Caster Semenya Targets 200m Ahead of 2021 Olympics

South African Olympic champion Caster Semenya has said she believes she will be successful in 200m events regardless of the result of her appeal to overturn a decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport which approved athletics governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations to prescribe hormone-suppressing drugs for any woman with disorder of sex development (DSD) from competing in 400m to 1,500m events. "I call myself 'supernatural', so I can do anything that I want," Semenya said.
