Caster Semenya is awarded the gold medal for the 800m at the 2012 London Olympics after Russia's Mariya Savinova-Farnosova was disqualified for doping.
Caster Semenya wins gold—five years later.
The South African mid-distance runner takes the 800m gold for the 2012 London Games, after the Court for Arbitration for Sport (CAS) disqualified Russian mid-distance runner, Mariya Savinova-Farnosova, who originally won the race, for doping.
According to eNCA, CAS released a statement on the decision today, determining that Savinova-Farnosova was doping between July 2010 to August 2013.
As a result, all her achievements during that period have been disqualified. She's currently ineligible from competing, which began in August 2015.
This makes Semenya a double Olympic champion.
