South African middle-distance runner and world champion, Mokgadi Caster Semenya, has finally tied the know with longtime lesbian girlfriend, Violet Roseboya in a traditional wedding ceremony in Ga-Dikgale, in the Capricorn District of Limpopo which she reportedly paid R25,000 dowry to her in-laws.
Caster Semenya, who burst to the limelight in 2009 when she won gold in the women’s 800 metres at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin with a time of 1:55.45 in the final, has been a subject of controversy regarding her $exual orientation.
She was forced to undergo gender testing after reports emerged that she was more of male than she female.
She dressed like a man in a traditional outfit while her girlfriend is in a complete feminine attire to complement her partner.
Semenya’s greatest achievement to date was a silver medal in the 800m at the 2012 London Olympics.
