Limpopo Sport MEC, Onicca Moloi has urged the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) to challenge the decision by world athletics body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to force certain female track athletes to reduce their testosterone levels.
The MEC has labelled it as a “racist” decision aimed at isolating Olympics 800 meter champion Caster Semenya.
Semenya hails from Moletjie, outside Polokwane in Limpopo.
MEC’s spokesperson Moloko Moloto says MEC Moloi is right behind Sascoc.
“MEC Onicca Moloi is aware that SASCOC is equally unhappy with the new anti-Caster Semenya regulations therefore they should immediately challenge this lousy with the court of arbitration for sports because clearly the IAAF is megalomaniac bully that will stop at nothing to humiliate our golden girl,” says Moloto.
This week, Sascoc president Gideon Sam says the fact that the IAAF always makes important announcements that have an effect on Olympic 800 metres champion Caster Semenya ahead of big athletic events is suspicious.
