Caster Semenya Free to Run 800m Without Medication for Now as Swiss Court Floors IAAF

June 3, 2019

(The Guardian) – Caster Semenya is once again free to run the 800m without having to take medication – at least for the time being – after the Swiss supreme federal court ordered the IAAF to suspend its testosterone regulations for athletes with differences in sexual development with immediate effect. The surprise news – which completely blindsided athletics’ governing body – means that the Olympic champion and other DSD athletes can compete in distances ranging from 400m to a mile without medication until at least 25 June.
