Semenya: I’ll never take drugs

June 13th, 2019

Caster Semenya has urged athletic’s governing body to drop its pursuit of female runners with high testosterone levels and instead focus on catching dope cheats. Speaking after winning a 2000m race on the outskirts of Paris, the South African made clear that she will continue to refuse to medicate to comply with hugely controversial rules pushed by the IAAF, which require athletes with differences in sexual development (DSDs) to lower their testosterone if they wanted to compete internationally in events between 400m and a mile. Semenya, who has won two Olympic gold medals over 800m, said: it ‘does not matter’ if she has to change her preferred discipline: ‘It can be 200m, it can be long jump, it can be heptathlon, you name it … I’ve won everything I’ve ever wanted. So if I was to change any event of course why not.’
