Messages of support pour in for Caster Semenya in her battle against the IAAF
Messages of support are pouring in for SA's top athlete Caster Semenya as she will be going to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Monday to challenge proposed rules that would force her to lower her testosterone levels.
The #HandsOffCaster has since gone viral with people from all walks of life sending out messages to Semenya describing her as the SA's National Treasure.
Seems it's tough for them to accept that an African woman is the best in the world! Hands off Caster Semenya! #HandsOffCaster 🐍— Ulrich Janse van Vuuren (@UlrichJvV) February 15, 2019
If she wasn't winning and beating every competitor like she is now, you wouldn't be hounding her. Leave her alone and stop belittling her. We support her fully & unapologetic about that. #HandsOffCaster https://t.co/JECZpND9re— Thab🅾 Tshabalal🅰 (@Thabo_tnice) February 15, 2019
