Would you please read and try to understand things before you weigh in.
So maybe we should have unisex sport events? Than maybe say f*ck you to all actual female athletes in a result. If anything allowing Caster to compete among females is far more discriminatory than not allowing her while her testosterone level is sky-high and her anatomy is also more that of a male. It's a slap in the face for too many, but as always there are some highly triggered people who will defend Semenya's case as much as they wish.

Agreed.

I'm unclear of what the process of challenging a CAS ruling is (if there is one) but it should happen.

The IAAF have clearly got a problem with Semenya and should be held to account for it.

I suspect that, if the forensic spotlight were to be turned onto their underlying motivation, it would be enlightening for everyone.

Good luck in one person bringing the IAAF down in courts Sebastian Coe is no supporter of Semenya and he will fight a bitter war if needed.
