American basketball player LeBron James made a recent stop in Berlin, Germany to watch local athlete Caster Semenya compete in the IAAF World Challenge Meeting.

Semenya did not disappoint the basketball superstar – she won the 1 000 metre women’s race and broke her own record by covering the two-and-a-half lap race in a mere 2:30:70. She clocked a time of 2:31:01 when she ran in Rabat, Morocco in July.

James was eager to meet Semenya after she completed her race, and posed for several pictures with the local multi-Olympic-medalist.
