Caster Semenya, the women's 800 metres world champion, has been named in South Africa's Commonwealth Games squad.

Semenya has made just three competitive appearances since being cleared to race by the IAAF after a series of gender verification tests.

The 19-year-old has won each of her comeback races, and this weekend competes at the Diamond League meeting in Brussells.

It'll be a significant step up in class from the fields she's faced recently and she says she'll be happy to run under 2 minutes.

The Commonwealth Games take place in New Delhi between October 3rd and 14th.
