A New Look for Semeyer

South Africa’s Caster Semenya has a new look.

Semenya won gold in the 800 m at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics with a time of 1:55.45 in the final, again setting the fastest time of the year. Plaqued by rumor and innuendo about her gender, the star athlete was tested to detemine if she was a female. Recently she was featured on the cover of a popular magazine sporting a new hair style, a fashionable black dress, and nail polish.

If Semenya has made this change for her own personal reasons, more power to her. However, if she is responding to public pressure in abandonding her normal manner of dressing, I can only caution her to be true to herself.
