Nope, still no end to the Caster Semenya saga

A big media conference was called for Thursday afternoon where, we were told, the issue of Caster Semenya's taking part in competitive running would be addressed. Which we took to mean a deal had been reached allowing here to compete again. But the sports ministry cancelled it at the last minute.What does it all mean? Perhaps only that, with the World Cup opening less than a day away, there were bigger fish to fry. Mail & Guardian
