When South African runner Caster Semenya burst onto the world stage in 2009, her championship was questioned and, in sexist and racist ways, her body was scrutinized.

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.
