Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya of South Africa will no longer be able to race with women. She lost the case in Switzerland’s Supreme Court on Tuesday. The court has ordered treatment to reduce the male hormones present in his body.
Last year, The Court of Arbitration for Sports (Sports Arbitration) ordered Semenya to reduce hormones. The sports tribunal had said that Semenya would have to reduce the body hormone testosterone by taking drugs. Semenya had filed an appeal in the Swiss court against the decision, which is now dismissed.
I will not change myself: Semenya
Semenya has refused to obey this order. She knows that if she does not reduce hormones, she will not be able to participate in next year’s Tokyo Olympics. Despite this, he said, “I do not agree with such a rule.” I do not accept the World Athletics order to take drugs (hormone-lowering drugs). Whoever I am, I’m fine. I will not change myself. ”
Excess of testosterone hormone in Semenya’s body
Semenya has won 2–2 in the Olympic, Commonwealth Games and 3 golds in the World Championship. Castor ran in the World Championship for the first time in 2009. After this, the IAAF conducted a gender test of Castor. Tests revealed that the amount of testosterone hormone released in their body is very high.
Approval to run in men’s category
Following the test report, the Federation banned Castor from running in the Woman category. The federation had said that if Semenya wants to run, she would have to run in the male category or she would have to lower her T-level (testosterone level) through medical procedures.
God is given body, will not take hormone reducing medicine
Semenya said after the order of the sports tribunal, “I trust God. This life is given by God. What will happen in life, it will also decide the same. When he wants, my career will end. But as long as he is not wanting, no human can stop me. My body is also given by God, I will not take any medicine to reduce any hormones in my body at the behest of anyone. certainly not.”
Testosteron hormone occurs in the body of men
Testosterone is the male hormone. It happens in the body of men only. Its volume can be between 300 and 1000 nanograms per dl. T-levels determine mood, physical and mental activity. Its volume is 20 to 30 in women. This T-level in Semenya’s body has risen to between 400 and 500. This is why they are genetically stronger than other female athletes.
