- A meme featuring a picture of South African Olympic champion, Caster Semenya, leaning over to check in on fellow athlete, Lynsey Sharp, has Mzansi cackling with laughter
- The picture was shared with the caption, “O ryt Marieke?”
- Others subsequently added their own versions and the results are hilarious
A picture of South African Olympic champion, Caster Semenya, and opponent, Lynsey Sharp, has been turned into a cheeky meme and Mzansi is in fits of giggles.
Sharp is the butt of the joke in this case, with the punchline being that Semenya’s British opponent is known for often losing at her 800m events.
The picture was shared with the caption, “O ryt Marieke?” suggesting that Semenya is checking in on her slower sister.
Some social media users used the opportunity to create their own hilarious versions of the meme.
An especially clever version asked Sharp if she was, in face, “Sharp”.
Briefly.co.za found that some commenters used the post as an opportunity to sing the talented Semenya’s praises.
One social media user shared an exceptional piece of fan art which captured Semenya’s grace and power.
