IAAF targeting of Caster Semenya sexist and racist - EFF

Have you tried writing for film and television

In 2017, the British Journal of Sports Medicine determined women with elevated testosterone levels had a 1.78% yo 4.53% competitive advantage in events including the 400 meters, 400-meter hurdles, 800 meters, hammer throw and pole vault.

"We want athletes to be incentivised to make the huge commitment and sacrifice required to excel in the sport".

Other athletes believe she has an unfair advantage because of the high levels of naturally occurring testosterone in her body.

Semenya's times were seemingly effected by these new measures but she still took gold at the London Olympics in 2012 after original 800m victor Mariya Savinova-Farnosova was later disqualified by Court of Arbitration for Sport after being found guilty of doping.

The EFF calls on all Africans and peoples of the world to rally in support of Caster Semenya and reject the IAAF for the racist and misogynist organisation it is. She undertook gender testing after that victory.

In 2011, athletics' governing body attempted to prohibit female athletes with hyperandrogenism (excessive levels of androgens in the female body) from competing at worldwide events under IAAF guidance.

She claimed two silver medals in the women's +90kg category at last year's World Weightlifting Championships in the United States, becoming the first New Zealand competitor to step onto the podium at the event. While the previous rules were enforced, her season-best times were around 1:59 or slower.

In a press statement, ASA recognised that the female classification process started years ago, up to the point that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) became involved, but stated that they would consult experts on the new ruling. In Rio de Janeiro, Semenya retained her Olympic title, running 1:55.28.
