Rule 17.3.2 is not a good one. The rule book needs an overhaul. More troubling to me, however, is the lack of consistency and transparency from World Athletics in the implication of the rules.
They've told both me and even Niyonsaba herself that she can't see the video used to DQ her. Her coach supposedly saw it and claims he saw no rule infraction.
Here is my column on the whole ridiculousness. When are we going to get change? We had this same problem 5 years ago.
PS. Please keep this on topic. I do not want this to turn into a thread about intersex athletes. I want it to be about the rules and DQ process that has hurt the likes of Kemboi 5 years ago, Quigely 4 years ago and now Niyonsaba.
