ANCWL statement on new rules by IAAF

ANCWL statement on new rules by IAAF

26 April 2018

The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) has noted that the International Association of Athletes Federation (IAAF) has succumbed to the pressure of haters of Caster Mokgadi Semenya and announced a new law aimed at removing her from athletics.

In their concerted effort to please some of sore racists loosers who cannot afford to see a black female South African athletes dominating the world in 400m and 800m, the IAAF will compel female athletes with a high levels of testosterone to switch to the 5,000m and 10,000m or to take medication that can be used on a daily basis in tablet form to lower the testorone.

ANCWL calls for Department of Sport and Recreation to challenge this law by the IAAF to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). In our view this law is aimed at removing Caster from athletics. Caster has been subjected to vicious attack and the ANCWL will unapologetically defend her against this attacks even when are smuggled through back door as laws by IAAF.

The ANCWL stands by Caster Semenya and calls all South Africans to support her and many women facing homophobic attacks.
