So Caster Semenya can’t continue to comptete with women because her testosterone levels are too high. Let that sink in.
Look I have no problem with their racists and prejudice fueled ruling but my only question is why now? Why are her Tetosterone levels only becoming an issue now? She has been winning all her entire Athlete life. She has lived all her athletic life as a good role model for all ‘’hyperandrogenic’’ athletes and what they just did her now, is a shame. Aren’t they the ones who told her to ‘Just do it’?
The African National Congress, the ruling party, issued a statement describing the judgment as “disheartening” and accused the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) of “acting in a prejudicial manner that divides rather than unites athletes”.
The new rules oblige “hyperandrogenic” athletes – those with “differences of sexual development” (DSD) – to lower their testosterone levels if they wish to compete as women.
They know they have blown her career. If she lowers her testosterone levels she will definitely lose even when running with other DSD athletes. The other option would be to run with men and again, her testosterone levels will not be sufficient still.

I guess South Africa must ask itself if Apartheid really is a thing of the past.
