Two-time Olympic champion Caster Semenya has filed an appeal to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland over the IAAF’s introduction of testosterone regulations in athletics.

Semenya and Athletics South Africa had stated that the rules were unlawful before their appeal to CAS was rejected on May 1.

And on filing of her latest appeal, Semenya said: “I am a woman and I am a world-class athlete. The IAAF will not drug me or stop me from being who I am.”

Semenya’s appeal will focus on “fundamental human rights” as she asks the court “to set aside the decision of the CAS in its entirety”.
