Athletics SA appealing Semenya judgement

Athletics SA appealing Caster Semenya judgement

Lawyers who will be taking up Caster Semenya's appeal against the Court of Arbitration for Sport's verdict, have underlined three concerns in that decision.  


Sports and Recreation officials says they are to challenge the judgement.  

The department and Athletics SA will lodge an appeal at the Switzerland Federal Tribunal.   

Earlier this month, the court ruled in favour of the IAAF which had argued that female athletes such as Semenya had an unfair advantage over others and must be forced to regulate their testosterone levels. 

Just days after the judgement, three-time world champion won the 800-metre race at the Doha Diamond League meeting and told the media that she's not prepared to take hormone-suppressing treatment.
