Caster Semenya, the South African Federation in turn charges the IAAF


The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) had rejected the request of the South African runner Caster Semenya under the new "discriminatory" rules of the IAAF. The South African Athletics Federation announced Monday that it wants to appeal the judgment of this body.

Caster Semenya will be well supported by his federation in his fight against the IAAF.

As expected, the South African Athletics Federation will appeal the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). He had dismissed the South African athleteCaster Semenya. It is opposed to the new rules of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) which targets female athletes hyperandrogenic, as it.

According to the new regulation, athletes with high testosterone levels like Caster Semenya must take medication to lower this rate before competing. The South African Sports Ministry, also opposed to this measure, has indicated that the national federation would contest the controversial decision in a Swiss federal court. "We will call as soon as possible," said moreover Vuyo Mhaga, a spokesman for the minister quoted by AFP.

According to the official, the call of the Federation will first relate to "the challenge of two judges" involved in a previous judgment of the CAS, which had canceled in 2015 the suspension of an Indian sprinter Dutee Chandalso hyperandrogenic.

"We also do not know, and it has not been explained, how the IAAF will implement its new regulations," said the ministry spokesman. Vuyo Mhaga thinks another court can do justice to Caster Semenya. "We believe that the scientific information (about hyperandrogenic women) has finally been totally ignored, and we believe that another court could draw different conclusions," he says.

As a reminder, the new controversial IAAF regulation came into effect on May 8th.
