South Africa’s golden girl Caster Semenya has done it again as she cruised through to the 800m finals this morning.

On Sunday morning she will compete with the other finalists for the gold.

With all the brutal scrutiny coming from international media houses, fellow competitors and sports officials, she still managed to secure a spot in the finals.

On her social media pages she thanked South Africa for their support.

"Technically athletics is an individual sport, but to get to the top an individual needs a team. You guys are my team, your love and support has carried me this far. Thank you very much WE made it to the finals "
