RABAT (MAR): Caster Semenya's coach Jean Verster has said her pupil won't contest the 400m at the Olympic Games as it could jeopardise her chances in her specialist event, informs Independent Online. "No, it's not going to be possible (to do both). You don't want to take chances, so we won't be going for the 400 as well. If the 800 had to be first at the Olympics, then of course, it wouldn't have been a problem," he said ahead of the Rabat Diamond League on Sunday where Semenya will contest the 800m.
