When South African runner Caster Semenya burst onto the world stage in 2009, her championship was questioned and her body was scrutinized, in sexist and racist ways. Subsequently, international sport governing bodies ruled that targeted female athletes must medically alter their healthy bodies, under the guise of fair play. Today, four champion runners from the Global South fight back against racism, the policing of women’s bodies in sport, and the violation of their human rights.
