The Olympic champion of 800m running, Caster Semenya, joined the JVW club in his home town of South Africa.

Semenya was unable to defend the title of world champion in Doha in late September, because it did not accept the use of male hormones (testosterone) as requested by the World Athletics Federation (IAAF). The 28-year-old athlete, therefore, sought a football club to train to maintain fitness.

The transfer market in South Africa is closed, so Semenya can only train with JVW teammates and not play. “I am very excited about this new journey,” owner of 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medals said. “The team support and love me a lot.”

JVW was founded in 2013, by the current South African women’s soccer captain – Janine van Wyk. The women’s football tournament in South Africa is divided into nine smaller provincial competitions, and JVW is one of the strongest teams in Gauteng province.

“Semenya is free at the moment, which is why she can do something different,” van Wyk told the BBC. “She had two training sessions with the team. Semenya has a lot of football potential, but we still need to help her improve more. Semenya told me that she will not stop running. Her appearance is great for the team and the tournament “.

Earlier this year, the IAAF prescribed limits of testosterone (male hormone) in female athletes. This greatly influenced Caster Semenya’s career. Olympic champions are forced to take testosterone-lowering drugs if they want to compete on the women’s track, due to the masculine hormone in her body. But Semenya insisted she would not take the medication, and appealed to the end. The Swiss High Court on July 30 refused to suspend Semenya’s decision to take testosterone-lowering drugs.

Semenya was not the first professional athlete to play soccer. Another Olympic athlete, Usain Bolt, trained with Stromsgodset (Norway) and Central Coast Mariners (Australia) but was not signed.

Despite being more miserable than the 0-13 defeat to the United States, the 1-5 defeat to Sweden still made the Thai women’s team stand out and hopefully go on to the 1/8 round of the 2019 World Cup. 

When the pairs of 2019 women’s World Cup semi-finals were determined, it was also the time when the record of the watched audience was set in this tournament. It is a surprise that women’s football is less concerned than men’s football.

Even Alex Morgan, the star of the American women’s football team, had to distribute leaflets to invite the audience to see the match between her team and the Thai women’s team in the group stage. It is a poignant image if people know that American women are the No. 1 candidate for the championship and Alex Morgan is a leading female football star and is called “David Beckham” of women’s football.

The efforts of Alex Morgan and the other female players in the 2019 World Cup have finally paid off. According to statistics from the Mist, the audience watching the match between England and Cameroon girls through TV is up to 6.9 million. This record was later broken in the English women’s next match against Norway in the quarterfinals with 7.9 million viewers watching over the TV. It is expected that this figure will be crushed in the upcoming semi-final between England and the US.
