Caster Semenya is the talk of the town after her Nike campaign went viral online

The Olympic gold medallist is the latest athlete to feature in one of the sporting brand’s inspiring new ads to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its iconic tagline, ‘Just Do It’.

Caster’s goose bump inducing-ad was released this week.

She took to Twitter to share the clip.

“Too fast? Too bad. I was born to do this. #justdoit,” she captioned the video.

Caster’s wife Violet took to Instagram to praise her “inspiring” wife

Violet shared a picture of a Nike store in South Africa that displayed an “I am Caster” board in its front window.

“You are such an inspiration to me, you surprise me every day. May God keep on giving you that strength. I love you,” she wrote.


Caster’s campaign follows those of fellow Nike ambassadors, tennis player Serena Williams and NFL star Colin Kaepernick – who is the face of the company’s 30th anniversary campaign.

Colin came under fire in America for refusing to stand during the national anthem – as is tradition – in protest of racial injustices in the country.

Here’s a look at their equally inspiring campaigns:
