Caster Semenya Fights to Run

South Africa produced a daughter, Caster Semenya, whose prowess on the athletics track raised eyebrows around the world over her glittering achievements - and testosterone levels, writes Legalbrief. Semenya has taken the International Association of Athletics Federations to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, for their ruling that she needs to lower her testosterone levels if she wants to continue competing in athletics.
