She also explained how they met, “We met a long time ago. I was about 15. We’ve been on and off. We decided to take things seriously two years ago, look up to our future, and get married.”

“Last year, when I told her I was ready to send my family to hers, she was happy, excited, she could not wait. We’ve been good friends. Relationships are all about a good friendship. But also I know marriage is not easy, especially when you are in a long-distance [one] . Like now I’m in Potch, she’s in Pretoria. So it’s not easy.”

They have two children together

Testosterone condition

Caster is inters*x. Differences in sex development (DSD) were present in her from birth. This indicates that compared to women without this problem, her body generates more testosterone. Caster is therefore not eligible to race in Elite events between 400m and a mile as of 2018. In July 2023, the European Court of Human Rights found that Caster’s fight against Swiss legal limits on testosterone levels for female athletes had been let down by those institutions.
