NAIROBI (KEN): David Okeyo, Chief Excecutive Officer of the senior African Athletics Championships, has invited Caster Semenya to run at the continental championships this summer. Semenya has not yet been cleared by the IAAF to run in international competitions but Okeyo sees no problems and is convinced it will add an extra spark to the competition he said on nation.co.ke. The organisers of the African Athletics Championships also said that South Africa has missed the deadline for registering athletes and are not sure if the country will send a team. Athletics Kenya secretary-general David Okeyo said on Tuesday he had still not received preliminary forms from Athletics South Africa for the July event. He said he had been forced to extend the deadline from March 31 until the end of April. The team should be announced by wednesday.
