ThuliMadonsela3 on her own terms..... this is the typical ignorant South African, right ? Y a sa tswe no bona those people cause they are not human those guys.. I was all for Caster until I read that Her beautiful wife was pregnant. How did Caster get that right Red people can't breath when they see blacks dominating in sport, science etc. Same on you Athletics SA. Lewis Hamilton is being sabotaged by red people because he is about to break Schumacher's record. Red people are a problem in this world.
ThuliMadonsela3 If I was Caster I would just race with the men . A victory in a men's race would go down in history - a serious clapback 😎 Yes you are %100 percent right they are the one to srush out the problem of their s Our kids and women are not safe at all What is wrong with South Africa Why was Zola Bud treated differently? Bullshit
Fight on girl, basijwayela amakhekh' omngcwabo. Ngekesizwe ngabo! Wrong move, good luck to her any way. I feel sorry for Chester actually it shouldn't be her fight it was supposed to be an institutional fight athletic SA is failing her dismally. It's really unfair for African Child to be treated the way they are treating Chester, she didn't ask to be born like this.
Good for her!! She deserves to fight for her rights! 💜🇿🇦👍🏻🏳️🌈 Who is paying for this man's legal fees? Stop wasting taxpayers money! He is in no way a woman he doesn't even identify as a woman? ThuliMadonsela3 Get them girl !!!!!! Reminds me of Pistorius' fight... Does the court have jurisdiction? I support her
Athletic SOUTH AFRICA is failing them, especially her. Because she was born like this, it's her disability or advantage in life all we have to do is let her be. We shouldn't let the Europeans treat our athletes like this. All the best to her. Some people can not think . One good question was asked “ men of low testosterone should compete with women as other men have more advantage over them?”
What is the fight for? Im still confused I think semenya is unfair to women who contest against him/her. Bathathe MCasteristo ! ThuliMadonsela3 Keep in mind that no one owns human being here. You are blasting Casters humanity like this on Twitter, go on.. Leka ngwana mma go tla loka Waste of time. It is nothing to do with race. She must compete as a man. I compare her with Russian sisters Irina and Tamara Press. They were also called Press brothers. They were great athletes but stop competing when gender verification was introduced.
Though he she hv to be a pure woman hormonally to compete with other women Don't take drugs just run in the men's races. Our very own Semenya! Fearless, Strong & beautiful. We are 100% behind you 🇿🇦♥️♥️♥️ Why dont he just run against those with the same testosterone levels If you support her, you are tacitly supporting doping in Sport. It's really not complicated
Wrong idea if you ask me and waste of money - Europeans complained about her and she is appealing to them? 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 This is nonsense, the europians ans americans are allowing men that identify as women to xompete in female competition yet a women who was born a women needs medications? I love Caster. I'm just wondering if she has an unfair advantage over her competitors. I understand that she has a naturally occurring advantage over her competitors; I'm wondering if it's a fair advantage?
Complicated he she she he She will lose, because her skin would be against her😒 We stand firmly behind you caster800m 💐💐💐💐 May God strengthen you 💕 🙄
