WATCH: CASTER SEMENYA TRAINS WITH FOOTBALL CLUB JVW
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Caster Semenya has continued training with South African football club JVW as she prepares to make the switch from the athletics track to the football field.
The 28-year-old Semenya has made a career change following a rule change from the IAAF that means she is unable to compete without taking testosterone-reducing drugs.
With the 2019 World Athletics Championships starting in Doha, Qatar, on Friday, Semenya was not allowed to defend her 800m title despite continuing to fight the rule change by IAAF.
Semenya joined the South African football team outside the transfer window at the start of September but won’t be allowed to participate for her new club until the start of the 2020 season.
