The Best 63 Caster Semenya Quotes

Caster Semenya is a well-known South African middle-distance runner who also won an Olympic gold medal in 2016. During the 2009 World Championships, she won gold in the women’s 800 meters.

She also won the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2017 World Championships, which increased her popularity.

In terms of her childhood, she was born a female, reared a female, and identifies as a female.

Because of an intersex disorder, she was born with XY chromosomes and extremely high testosterone levels.

She won the World Championships in 2009, and shortly after that, she was subjected to sex tests.

She was restricted from competing in 400m, 800m, and 1500m races in 2019 due to new IAAF rules that prohibit women like her from taking testosterone-lowering medicine.
