Sad for Caster but good overall for women's running.

Does this mean Caster can run the 1500 this year?
"While the IAAF rule applies to the 400-, 800-, and 1,500-meter events — Semenya’s primary races — the CAS judges say the IAAF should not yet apply the rules to the 1,500."


Yes she can run the 5,000 without lowering testosterone.

I think a lot of people on here are having the same reaction. Sad ruling for Semenya but necessary won for women's sport. And the ruling appears to confirm Semenya is 46 XY.

A bit surprised the IAAF won as their initial study was completely botched and the human emotional angle is to let an athlete like Semenya compete in what she wants to compete in.
