Caster Semenya out of Doha World Championships after court ruling

South African athlete will not defend 800m title in September after Swiss court reverses reprieve on testosterone rules.



Double Olympic champion Caster Semenya will not be able to defend her 800-metres title at the World Championships in September after a Swiss court reversed a ruling that temporarily lifted the IAAF's testosterone regulations imposed on her, a spokesperson for the athlete said. 

"I am very disappointed to be kept from defending my hard-earned title, but this will not deter me from continuing my fight for the human rights of all of the female athletes concerned," Semenya said in a statement from her representative.
