The 800-meter Olympic champion posted a picture showing that these days she’s featured on the back of the ever-popular Chappies bubble-gum wrappers. The well-known bubble-gum range’s fun facts have been a South African favourite for a long time – and Caster is clearly a fan too.
“During my childhood I used to read the "Did you knows" inside the chappies wrapper, but I've never thought that 1 day I'd read about myself,” she captioned the photograph.
Meanwhile, the SA-born superstar won the women's 800m event at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Zurich, Switzerland on Thursday.
