The majority of experts I’m hearing feel Caster should be allowed to compete against women.
Caster Semenya has claimed gold in the Diamond League‘s 800m women’s final, in what was her last race before the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) imposes controversial new rules limiting testosterone in female athletes.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) this week dismissed an appeal by the South African to set aside the IAAF’s regulations, which will require athletes with differences in sex development to take medication to reduce their testosterone levels.
The new rules, which have sparked a fierce backlash, will come into effect on Wednesday.
… After the race, Semenya was asked by the Daily Mail’s Riath Al-Samarrai whether she plans to take medication to comply with the IAAF’s regulations and she said, “Hell no.”
BBC’s Ade Adedoyin was told by Semenya that she has no plans to retire and plans to compete at the IAAF World Championships in September.
