Once again, Caster Semenya has shown the world what she is all bout and made her country proud. On Tuesday afternoon, she continued to ignore the hate and claim the 1500m gold medal at the Commonwealthย Games.

Not only did Semenya claim the gold, she also obliterated the games and South African record. Zola Budd moves over but she will surely be proud!

With this victory quickly making waves across the country, we gathered some of the best reaction from social media.

Some of us “non-athletes” have to do what we can to compare ourselves to legends like Caster.
