Stellenbosch - Stealing the show from a reigning world champion, Caster Semenya won national titles in the 400, 800, and 1 500 metres and ran Olympic qualifying times in the first two events at the South African championships on Saturday.
Looking sharper than she has in years, the former 800 metre world champion set world-leading times in the 400 and 800. Finishing with the 1 500, Semenya became the first athlete to win all three titles at the championships, and did it within about four hours.
"The legs don't feel too much pain. I'll pay tomorrow," she said.
