"I'm looking forward to my first Olympics and the plan is to include the 1500m race," the 20-year-old told the Sowetan newspaper after winning her first race in South Africa since striking gold during the 2009 world championships.
Semenya clocked 2:04.12 to win a weekend 800m race in north-west university town of Potchefstroom during the first leg of the national athletics series race.
Semenya, whose personal best is 1:55.45, tells us she hopes to lower her time to two minutes in the next round of a series that will be used as preparations for the upcoming trip to Asia.
"I feel much better and that is why I ran and won the race. I am under observation by a physiotherapist, though."
