Supporters of South Africa's teenage 800 metres world champion Caster Semenya wave during a parade where Semenya thanked her fans, in Polokwane August 29, 2009. Semenya, whose victory has been overshadowed by a gender testing row, returned home to a heroine's welcome on August 25, 2009. Furious South Africans have accused the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) of everything from racism to imperialism for ordering the test after her rapid improvement over the last year raised its suspicions.
