Caster Semenya set for new career in football
Multiple gold medallist and 800m and 1500m World Champion, Caster Semenya, is set for a new adventure outside athletics as she has joined a female football team, JVW Football Club, based in Gauteng, South Africa.
JVW Football Club is owned by Banyana Banyana Captain, Janine van Wyk, and that is the place Semenya is hoping to make a name for herself going forward.
The Olympic hero has literally been frozen out of the tracks following the new rules put in place by the International Athletics body, IAAF, which does not allow Semenya to run alongside female colleagues.
According to a statement by her representatives, Semenya 28, has always had a love for football, having played soccer at school and trained every day while growing up.
