Pearl Thusi showed she has star athlete, Caster Semenya's back by giving the IAAF an almost tangible 'tsek' on social media. This is of course in response to the IAAF's desire to force female athletes to regulate testosterone levels.
Pearl Thusi is a straight-shooter and she made it clear that she's supporting South African star athlete, Caster Semenya.
The IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) shared a tweet of Caster's recent epic win at the Doha Diamond League meeting, but Pearl was not impressed.
In response to the tweet, she said:
"Due diligence but we didn't need your help for this info. Tsek."
This response is of course because of the IAAF's aim to have female athletes take medicine to regulate their testosterone levels.
Pearl's fans were amused by her comment, and some even said they could feel that 'tsek'.
Tell them ngithe jealousy is a disease
Serve them Pearl iyadika lentlangano.
I felt that #Tsek
Meanwhile, Caster made it clear that she will not be taking any medicine. Briefly.co.za reported that the Court of Arbitration for Sport decided to side with the IAAF in the ruling which aims to force female athletes to regulate testosterone levels.
The athlete has said “hell no” to taking hormone-regulating medication and will be appealing the court’s decision, according to eNCA.
