What Caster Semenya's IAAF Loss Means For All of Us
In reaction to the loss of the landmark case, Semenya is quoted by The New York Times as saying, "I know that the IAAF's regulations have always targeted me specifically. For a decade the IAAF has tried to slow me down, but this has actually made me stronger. The decision of the court will not hold me back. I will once again rise above it and continue to inspire young women and athletes in South Africa and around the world."
