Caster Semenya cruised to a comfortable 2nd place in the 1500m heat 1 to advance to the semi-final with the 2nd fastest qualifying time. Semenya ran a season best time of 4:02.84 behind world record holder Genzebe Dibaba who finished ahead  of Semenya in 4:02.67 but they both didn’t want to give too much away making it look comfortable.
