Matheba, who looked demure and professional as she spotted a sleek ponytail, opened the discussions by highlighting her very own philanthropical work here in South Africa, where she’s championed her Bonang Matheba education fund to assist young women with furthering their studies.

She then proceeded to execute her moderating duties, which have left fans wowed by her ability to stretch and refashion her famous effervescent presenting style to the diplomatic and official tone of the event and its world leaders.

The event focused on breaking barriers and leaving no girls behind – a countdown to 203o that aims to redress failures to meet the Millennium Development Goal of achieving universal primary education by 2015.

The goal is to accelerate action on girls’ education while ensuring that girls who are currently in school are able to master the basics and progress through secondary education, it says here.

Caster Semenya’s Born To Do It Nike Ad Is Bomb AF

Caster Semenya sprints past the challenges she’s faced in her career in this victorious Nike ad

Caster Semenya Nike ad

Nike continues shaking the advertising table with their recent radically transformative adverts, which find the global sports brand taking strong political stances in their latest Just Do It campaign.

Departing sharply from the clean aesthetic that has come to define the sometimes sterile marketing of major brands, it appears the brand has decided to have an authentic voice, even if it comes with some backlash.

A series of visually captivating clips have been banged out in quick succession over the last few weeks, and many of the adverts have people talking, Nike trending, and sneakers being burnt, literally.

READ: CASTER SEMENYA WEDS LONG TERM GIRLFRIEND 

It’s just days after the controversial Colin Kaepernick advert first premiered, resulting in massive backlash that saw those opposed to the national anthem protests burning their pairs.

And now the brand has debuted a mini Caster Semenya documentary, in which she stands her ground gallantly against the persistent, and often quite violent, opposition she has been facing throughout her career as one of South Africa’s most exceptional athletes, as well as one of the world’s fastest women.

Over the years, the legitimacy of Caster’s womanhood has been a matter of debate for various sporting bodies, some who’ve tried forcing to take medication to suppress testosterone in her body.

“Would you prefer I hadn’t worked so hard?”, Semenya asks in a powerful monologue cascading on the Born to do it through line. “Would it be easier for you if I wasn’t so fast ?”

The advert distils the athlete’s journey in a marriage of eras that jumps from her childhood into the women she’s become, a sprinter with a few records under her belt.

“Too bad. I was born to do it.”, she says.
