JOHANNESBURG – Three-time world 800m champion Caster Semenya will swop her spikes for soccer boots after the JVW Football Club announced yesterday they had signed the track sensation.
Semenya said she was looking forward to the “new journey” after her first training session with the club on Tuesday evening.
“I am grateful for this opportunity, and I appreciate the love and support I already get from the team,” Semenya said in a statement released by the club.
“I am looking forward to this new journey, and hopefully, I can contribute as much as I can to the club.”
The Gauteng-based club, owned by Banyana Banyana captain Janine van Wyk, revealed Semenya would make her official soccer debut next year.
