Semenya had competed in and won a 2,000 metre race in Montreuil when she paid the team a visit ahead of their second match in the FIFA Women’s World Cup against China on Thursday.
Guess who came to visit & wish us well for the game tomorrow! Thanks @caster800m for taking time out of your very tight schedule to come see us. You are a true Inspiration 🙌🇿🇦 pic.twitter.com/IQoXxS8R9t

Semenya’s hope was to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for the South African national women’s soccer team.
When @caster800m is in town there is laughter all the way and the girls loved (and laughed) every minute with her #FIFAWWC #DareToShine #fifawwc #BanyanaBanyana #LeMomentDeBriller @SAFA_net @bafana_bafana #Rsa pic.twitter.com/5qsmmK3IBz
