Two-time Olympic gold medallist Caster Semenya claims she is starting a”new journey” after joining a women’s soccer club.
Semenya is appealing against a decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport which accepted the IAAF’s debut of a new testosterone limit for female athletes and will not shield her title in the World Championships in Doha at September.
The 28-year-old has started training with Southern African side JVW, but is not able to create her debut before next year – beginning in 2020 – together with the transfer window currently closed.
South Africa JVW, that are owned by South Africa the captain Janine van Wyk of women, announced the signing of Semenya.
“I’m thankful for this chance and I love the love and support that I get from the group,” Semenya said in a statement.
“I’m looking forward to this new trip, and hopefully I can contribute as far as I can into the club”
Van Wyk said:”I’m absolutely out that out of all of the other women’s clubs around the world, she has picked JVW since the club where she’d like to start showcasing her soccer skills.
“I welcomed her first training [session] with the team on Tuesday and has been amazed to see that she definitely has all the principles”
