The international Association of athletics federations (IAAF) is going to declare to the court of arbitration for Sport (CAS), two-time Olympic champion in the race, caster Semenya of South Africa must be considered a man that feels a woman.
The IAAF wants to introduce a rule that athletes with high testosterone can compete in tournaments under the auspices of the IAAF only on the condition the medication is intended to reduce the level of this hormone.
Due to the possible introduction of this rule Semenya has filed a lawsuit in CAS. The hearing in court will take place next week.
After the victory of the Seed at the world championship in 2009, many athletes had doubts as to her gender. The athlete has passed a special test, which showed that the runner was a woman, but she has a very high level of male hormones.
Semenya is a double Olympic champion and double world champion in run on 800 m. In may 2015, she entered into a gay marriage with his beloved violet of RISEBA.
Semenya is a two-time Olympic champion in the 800 meters, as well as a multiple winner of various competitions, including world Championships, Commonwealth Games, African games and African Championships.
