This week, Caster Semenya revealed her latest Nike ad to the mass appreciation of the internet. Reactions praised the message of the campaign, ‘Too fast? Too bad. I was born to do this. #justdoit‘. We all think we’re Caster’s biggest fan, but the truth is, her wife Violet Raseboya is the real one. And just to remind us, she posted this adorable message on Instagram, thanking Caster for just, you know, being great and stuff.

‘You are such an inspiration to me. You surprise me every day,’ the caption read. ‘May God keep on giving you that strength 👊 I love you, Your friends and family loves you ❤.’


A quick look at the couple’s Instagram profiles shows a lesson for every successful relationship: support and appreciate your bae! Here are five times when Caster and Violet did just that (warning: *all* the feels ahead):

1. ‘She is focus, She is fast, She is dedicated’

ICYMI, earlier this month Caster continued her (literally) record-breaking streak, breaking a 1 000m record at the IAAF World Challenge meeting in Berlin. This put her at fifth place on the 1 000m world all-time list. This followed her third consecutive overall Diamond League 800m title, meaning Caster has not lost an 800m race since September 2015! Violet showed her support with this post reflecting Caster’s results.

3. It’s more than aesthetic

Caster and Violet definitely have an Insta couple aesthetic, but the messages of support and appreciation behind their posts are strong reminders of what it takes to be a winning couple.

4. Remember to laugh!

Violet posted this hilarious but also insightful caption, saying ‘I want to spend the rest of my life annoying you. Luv you ❤’ – something I’m sure all couples and spouses can agree on! Love is often more about choosing who you would have annoy you every other day, rather than loving someone when you feel like it, on certain days.

5. #TeamCobra

Wearing your love and support on your shirt is one way to show it. Though, sidenote, this might be a bit odd for those of us whose partners aren’t athletes.
