Double Olympic champion Caster Semenya won her last 800m race on Friday before the introduction of controversial rules limiting testosterone levels in female athletes which she had battled for years to stop.
Caster Semenya is being raped … not in a corner of a deserted street; not in the bushes; nor anywhere in secrecy, but right in front of our eyes. She is being raped while the world is watching. Yes, there’s you and I who are speaking against it and there are those who are cheering the barbaric act on, but the rape continues.
Senior specialist in clinical pharmacology at the University of Cape Town and Groote Schuur Hospital, Prof March Blockman says the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) is putting doctors at risk and asking them to act unethically.
The South African athlete, Caster Semenya, has lost her case against the athletic governing body, IAAF, which means that she will have to take medication to lower her testosterone levels if she wishes to continue competing internationally in running events.
Caster Semenya has been entered to run the 800 metres in Friday’s International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Diamond League 2019 season opening in Doha, the capital of the peninsular Arabian Gulf country Qatar.
