"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play…it is war minus the shooting."
Hold the front page!Stuart was delighted to have two front page Athletics Weekly stories this summer, featuring Caster Semenya and Shaunae Miller-Uibo.
Part of the Athletics Weekly big feature on Semanya
Miller-Uibo told Stuart: "This sport has enabled my Christian faith to grow,” she says. “Having my faith has enabled me to get up so many times when I’ve fallen in the sport. Without this gift that God has given me I wouldn’t be where I am now.”
Semenya said: "I am a Christian. I believe in the Bible. What I read in the Bible, that made me who I am today. I will not let humans’ reaction change me. I can change myself. When I read the Bible I feel peace. That’s how I am. Religious faith helps a lot because you know what is right and wrong”.
