Silverman lost to trans skater Lilian Gallagher during the competition held in May.
Since that time she has used her social media presence to campaign for the preservation of women’s athletics by calling for competitions to revert to women competing against other biological women and men competing against biological men.
‘I reached out to Redbull and was ignored,’ Silverman wrote on Instagram. ‘I am sick of being bullied into silence.
'Wat gebeur het, was onregverdig en ek was destyds te ongemaklik om te praat. Ek verstaan dat in vandag se samelewing selfs sommige vroue dink dit is aanvaarbaar, maar ek glo daarin om die regte ding te doen al is dit nie die gewilde ding nie. I now realize it’s really important for me to speak up and I’d like to schedule a time to talk.’
