The IAAF said it will fight a Swiss court decision to suspend its rules obliging athletes to lower their testosterone levels.
South Africa’s star olympian, Caster Semenya, is likely to be able to compete for around a month at international 800 metre races.
A Swiss court has ruled that the IAAF ruling regarding testosterone levels in female athletes with sexual differences is suspended ahead of Olympic runner, Caster Semenya’s appeal on the matter.
Athletics South Africa (ASA) said on Friday it had joined Caster Semenya’s appeal against the ruling that currently prevents the double Olympic champion from running her preferred distance races unless she takes testosterone-suppressant medication.
University Sport South Africa (USSA) announced a strong team that will take part at the 30th World Student games in Napoli, Italy from the 3rd until the 14th of July, in Pretoria, on Thursday.
