Caster Semenya is one of the most successful athletes to ever come out of South Africa and over the years, she has received some of the world's most prestigious racing medals including multiple golds.
Taking to Twitter, Caster posted a clip of her Nike Campaign and in the video, she is heard asking: “Will it be easier for you if I wasn't so fast? Will it be simpler if I stop winning? Would you be more comfortable if I was less proud? Would you prefer if I hadn't worked so hard?”
The star joins the likes of Serena Williams and Lebron James as part of Nike's 30th anniversary of their tagline ‘Just Do It'. Take a look at the video below:
