SAFA Supports Caster Semenya

The South African Football Association joins the rest of supporters of Caster Semenya around the world as she challenges the new regulations of the IAAF which seek to discriminate against athletes who bear raw natural talent simply because they supposedly have higher than normal levels of testosterone.

SAFA knows fully well, the pain of countless female football players who, on a daily basis are harassed, ridiculed and victimised sexually because they are deemed different by ignorant bigots.

In the name of women football player who are victims of the disgusting scourge of corrective rape, discrimination and murder, we hereby declare our unqualified support for Caster and hope that the Court of Arbitration in Sport will make the right decision when it hears this matter next week.
