I just hope that one day Caster can find peace in life. I hope Caster gets all the help that's needed.

This is such a sad story and unfortunately it just grows worse by the day. The SA govt and athletics cared more about medals and should have cared about the health and welfare of this young lady. Shame.


South African sports minister should be removed-who can trust anything from ZA sport now. The whole thing is a sad episode from a country who has slipped into more or less chaotic lack of awareness of the real world in sport and medicine.

South African sports and government are just shameless. This has been a very sad debacle and it is turning out they knew this along and hid from Caster. The ASA chief must resign!


Yep, it just gets worse as it goes along and more details are revealed. My prayers continue to Caster.....

Okay, so the official has been busted for lying, which many people suspected all along.

Are people putting him on blast saying that Semenya should not have been allowed to compete in the first place? That is the only way I can see she could have avoided any controversy.


The official and the coach both LIED and then the Country got involved and blamed the IAAF and played the race card and also LIED. All along they had themself lied and tricked Semenya into a gender test weeks before the championships.

They knew there was a problem and yet it was all about the win and a medal and not the person.

Shame on them all.


After decades of struggle against apartheid, these black South African officials are becoming an embarrassment. Denying HIV causes AIDS, using herbal remedies to "cure" HIV first come to mind.Now the head of athletics claims he didnt know about the gender test and the coach lies and tells Semenya it was a simple doping test. Oh and blame the controversy now on racism to get everyone about riled up.

Shame the beloved country!

Please do not be seduced by the example of Jamaica!!! Do not dope up these athletes to win at all costs! Do not lie to them about their bodies!!!

in my prayers always.
