Speaking to radio presenter Redi Tlhabi at the Discovery Leadership Summit in Sandton, Semenya said her fight was not only about her own future as an athlete but for young aspiring girls who may be influenced by the rules.
“To be honest this is not about me, I’ve achieved everything I want to achieve in life I was sitting at home thinking I can’t let this thing go on; what about the next generation? It is killing them,” Semenya said.
“What about those young girls who still want to run who are in the same situation as I am? It means their dreams would be shattered.
“Someone needs to do something about it, so I told my team we need to fight this thing, enough is enough.
