“This black woman…”: Berdine Castillo points at Ximena Restrepo and reveals the ugly phrase she said against her

New information is revealed regarding the complaints of Poulette Cardoch and Berdine Castillo, Chilean athletes who claim to have been dropped from Santiago 2023, despite having better brands than some of the national representatives.

It should be remembered that the most serious accusation was the one exposed by the athlete of Haitian origin, who even pointed to “racism.”

Now, after confirming that the vice president of World Athletics (and mother of Martina Weil Restrepo) was acquitted by the National Committee for Sports Arbitration (CNAD), the runner spoke with Mega and revealed unknown details of the situation that occurred prior to the 4×400 post race.

Restrepo’s phrase

“I heard when he said ‘I take Berdine off the baton’. I was like this ‘but what is happening’. Since he called my coach, when he was directing my warm-up, I said the broom is going to stay there,” she recalled.

In passing, he announced the controversial phrase that Restrepo said that afternoon: “My coach was present. He said ‘this black woman… this black woman doesn’t have to run’”.

What does Restrepo say?

In mid-April, Ximena Restrepo made a mea culpa. In a conversation on radio Agriculture, the vice president of world athletics assured that “I am completely clear and I want to be super emphatic in saying that I was neither discriminatory nor racist nor did I use my influences or my power for absolutely anything”.

“What I did was defend a technical position. I recognize that there could have been, due to the circumstances that I encountered when I arrived at the track, this chaos that existed, this desperation of the girls, this disorder. Some were crying, others didn’t know what to do, seeing Martina affected in that way, with everything that was happening, I let myself be carried away by emotions and I admit it. I do not have any problem”he added.

Furthermore, he acknowledged that “I have reflected a lot. I believe that one has to always try to be better, one has to try to do things well and hopefully, if I am faced with such difficult circumstances again, I will be able to react in a better way. In any case, I mean, I believe that one can always work to be a better person.”.
