Semenya’s legal team asked that they take into consideration the health concerns the runner could face by taking a medication to counteract her body’s normal process and asked that they wait to implement DSD Regulations, which is set to take place in seven days.


“Ms. Semenya believes that the dissenting Cas arbitrator will be shown to be correct and the DSD Regulations will be overturned,” a spokesperson for Semenya said.

“In the interim, Ms. Semenya believes that it is irresponsible for the IAAF to proceed with the implementation of the DSD Regulations in circumstances where the Cas decision makes it abundantly clear that there are serious problems with the regulations that need to be carefully considered and the DSD Regulations will unquestionably cause harm to the women affected by them.”
