- While Caster Semenya won't be allowed to defend her world middle distance title, she remains undefeated
- The Olympic medallist shared her views on the situation on social media, saying that she is aware of how this would make some feel
- With a new career on the horizon, Semenya is revelling in her success despite all the negativity
Caster Semenya has been barred from defending her title as the 800m Olympic champion but she seems to be taking it in her stride.
Posting to social media, Mzansi's darling commented that her success was a 'laxative' to some:
“I have just went through my 800m races of the 4 years of being unbeaten and I got to realise that it's a laxative to someone.”
Briefly.co.za reported that Semenya had been denied the opportunity to defend her title in Qatar next month.
The Swiss Federal Supreme Court had barred Castor from competing, with her legal battle against the IAAF continuing.
Despite the drama, Semenya seems to be in a good frame of mind. Her unexpected switch to a career in soccer might be the reason for her upbeat attitude, or maybe it's the solace of knowing her competitors will have a hard time beating her records.
