Athletics: Semenya to Miss World Championships After Court Ruling

Last updated on September 11th, 2021 at 03:30 pm

Caster Semenya says she will not defend her World Championship 800m title in September after a setback in her challenge to the restricting of testosterone levels in female runners.

But the South African said she would “continue her fight for human rights” despite her “disappointment”.

Semenya has twice appealed against IAAF rules preventing her from running without medication.

But a ruling allowing her to compete has now been overturned.
