Cyril Ramaphosa to skip top UN meeting to focus on problems at home
South Africa's Caster Semenya is a double Olympic champion in the 800m
Plans to classify female athletes by their testosterone levels “contravene international human rights” says the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Olympic 800m champion Semenya, 28, is challenging the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) over its bid to restrict levels of testosterone in female runners.
The UN called the plans “unnecessary, humiliating and harmful”.
The IAAF said the motion given to the UN contained “inaccurate statements”.
Under the IAAF rules, female athletes with naturally high testosterone levels would have to race against men or change events unless they took medication to reduce those levels.
The regulations will apply to women in track events from 400m up to one mile ,and require that athletes have to keep their testosterone levels below a prescribed amount “for at least six months prior to competing”.Source: BBC
