New IAAF Rules to Limit Career of South Africa's #CasterSemenya?

The International Association of Athletics Federations has introduced new Eligibility Regulations for Female Classification which may serve as a career-limiting move for South African long distance athlete Caster Semenya as they require "any athlete who has a Difference of Sexual Development" to take daily medication to control hyperandrogenism or switch to the 5,000m and 10,000m races only.
