The issue is not whether Semenya succeeds as a sprinter - unlikely - but what will happen when a genuinely talented sprinter with her condition chooses to compete against women.
That person would be required to do testosterone suppression to compete in the sprints. We would then be speculating as to whether she could be competitive at 800.
No, they wouldn't be required to suppress their testosterone. The IAAF rule doesn't apply to the sprints. That's why Semenya is trying to compete in the 200.
