The question is what has bought us to this point on the Caster Semenya matter, asks Luntu, a caller on the Eusebius Mckaiser show.
Luntu says the debate on Semenya should be about who brought us to this situation in the first place. It was female runners who complained about Semenya, not men.
Caster was just another female who was better than them, and they complained against her. Shouldn't we be honest? Who was complaining in the first place? Shouldn't we start there? None of us guys had an issue with her. Females need to be honest and say, ladies, we are the ones that complained against Caster.— Luntu, Caller
Olympic champion Semenya has been dealt a blow by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) ruling that says she must lower her testosterone levels to compete with women.
The court of arbitration announced the shocking verdict for sport on Wednesday.
Three arbitrators had spent more than two months deliberating over the complex and highly contentious case. Two of them were for and one was against the verdict.
Where are we going to go next? Are we going to say to even non-biological elements of contestation that we need to level the playing field?— Eusebius McKasier, Show host
I think it is an insult to the other athletes to say because you guys can't at the moment catch up to Caster, we are taking Caster out of the loop.— Shaun, Caller
This thing of Caster is sickening, and it makes me angry.— Pinky, Caller
In all fairness, all these American basketball players must have a limit to how tall they are to play basketball.— Leon, Caller
