Athletics: Semenya out of squad

ATHLETICS: World 800m champion Caster Semenya has been left out of South Africa's preliminary squad for the 2010 African Athletics Championships in Kenya. The 19-year-old, who underwent tests to determine her gender, has not raced since last year's World Championships.

She has earmarked a meeting on June 24 for her comeback, with test results expected earlier that month. An Athletics South Africa spokesman said Semenya could still qualify for the event, which starts on July 28.
