Rachel Kolisi recently shared a heartwarming post of herself pledging to help Caster Semenya fight against a ruling that she is not allowed to participate in women's 800m races unless she takes hormone balancing pills.
In her touching post, Kolisi calls on her fellow South Africans to sign a petition that may help Caster get back in the game and finally be able to participate without altering her natural hormonal balance.
"Every woman has the right to fully embrace her beauty and live unapologetically in the world she finds herself in, without having that questioned. Join me as I stand with @castersemenya800m in her ongoing fight against the IAAF, by signing the petition in link in my bio & stories," she wrote.
Her followers had this to say:
"Unbelievable that she has to fight this. #IstandwithCaster"
"Yes Rach! Let’s go Caster! We are behind you!"
Briefly News previously reported that in partnership with LUX South Africa, fans have taken to social media to show their support to Caster. LUX is backing Caster in this battle and started the wave of support among celebrities.
"Many super athletes are born with extraordinary biology. Like them, Caster Semenya was born this way. So why ban her? We believe no woman should be stripped of being a woman. Let Caster run free. #IStandWithCaster @caster800m”
"It breaks my heart that Caster Semenya has been banned from competing in the 800m race at the 2021 Olympics because someone else has decided her womanhood for her. I want to play my part rallying behind not only @castersemenya800m but other women who are to come after her," read a post by Zozi Tunzi, one of the celebs rallying behind Caster.
