World and Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya has challenged IAAF’s decision on some female athletes as being “unfair” as she heads straight to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).
Athletics’ governing body IAAF ruled that female runners with naturally high testosterone levels will have to take medication or be forced to race against men, or change events.
Semenya in her reaction said: “It is not fair. I just want to run naturally, the way I was born, I am Mokgadi Caster Semenya. I am a woman and I am fast.”
The rule will take effect from the 1st of November and will focus on women running 400m and above.
The 27-year old had previously been asked to undertake gender testing by IAAF but no results was made public officially.
