THE RACE TO BE MYSELF

THE RACE TO BE MYSELF

About

In collaboration with Jonathan Ball, Caster Semenya and Koketso Sachane.

World-class athlete Caster Semenya has been in the international limelight from a young age. But in recent years, her stardom has been overshadowed by merciless speculations about her womanhood. This led to a lengthy court case about her right to run as herself. In 2020, she was denied the opportunity to defend her record at the Olympic Games. Through it all, Caster remained quiet, but she is now ready to break her silence and share the story of her upbringing, her sexuality and her fight to be herself.


In samewerking met Jonathan Ball Met Caster Semenya en Koketso Sachane

Die wêreldklas-atleet Caster Semenya is van jongs af reeds in die internasionale kollig. Maar in die afgelope klompie jare is haar sterstatus oorskadu deur genadelose bespiegelinge oor haar vroulikheid. Dit het tot ’n uitgerekte hofgeding gelei oor haar reg om as haarself aan wedlope deel te neem. In 2020 is sy verbied om haar rekord by die Olimpiese Spele te verdedig. Deur dit alles het Caster stilgebly, maar nou is sy gereed om haar swye te verbreek en vertel sy van haar grootwordjare, haar seksualiteit en die stryd om haarself te wees.
