ROME (ITA): Caster Semenya will take World Athletics to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in order to overturn their rule which disallows athletes with differences in sexual development (DSD) from competing internationally at distances between 400m and the mile unless they take testosterone-reducing medication. "We will be taking World Athletics to the European Court of Human Rights. We remain hopeful that World Athletics will see the error it has made and reverse the prohibitive rules which restrict Ms Semenya from competing," said Semenya's lawyer Greg Nott in a media release. Semenya is currently looking to qualify in the 200m at the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year. Writes Reuters.
