South Africa's women's 800m world champion Caster Semenya, the subject of an investigation into her gender, will skip the first major domestic race starting this week, a spokeswoman said Thursday. “She is not running,” Athletics South Africa (ASA) spokeswoman Ethel Manyaka said. “There were reports like that, but her lawyers were really adamant that they did not want her to participate,” Ethel added.
