IAAF wants Semenya to lower her testosterone levels or quit, says report

Caster Semenya

Caster Semenya of South Africa. If Semenya doesn't reduce her testosterone levels by taking medication, she will be forced to switch to 5,000m and 10,000m.

She returned to the track and won silver medals at the 2011 world championships and 2012 London Olympics, both of which were upgraded to gold later after Russian victor Mariya Savinova was found guilty of doping and had her results erased from July 2010 onwards.

The implementation of this rule may undermine the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which ruled to suspend regulations in hyperandrogenism in women's athletics.

"We were asked by CAS to provide evidence of the magnitude of the advantage, which we now have", he said.

According to the Daily Mail, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) will on Thursday announce a new set of rules for athletes with hyperandrogenism.

The new DSDs rule also replaces the IAAF's previous regulations governing eligibility of females with hyperandrogenism.

"In addition, the IAAF has gathered observational data about the difference in performance levels of DSD athletes depending on whether or not their testosterone levels are suppressed".

If she doesn't, she will be forced to compete in longer distances - or, effectively, quit the sport.

This is also not the first time the South African athlete faces a challenge of this kind.

The IAAF made Semenya take a sexual verification test, which was initially kept secret but revealed by the media in 2009.

The subsequent changes significantly impacted her performance in later races.

The IAAF will be seeking to "level the playing fields" in the events Semenya competes.
