South African double Olympic medalist Caster Semenya is free to run without medications in the female category after the Swiss Supreme Court suspended IAAF regulations against her.

On May 1, the Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed Semenyas appeal over IAAF testosterone regulations and she filed an appeal to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland challenging the ruling against her last week.

The Swiss Court has ordered the immediate suspension of the implementation of the eligibility regulations, meaning she can compete straight away in her preferred 800 metres event without having to lower her testosterone levels with medication.

In a statement, Semenya said: “I am thankful to the Swiss judges for this decision. I hope that following my appeal I will once again be able to run free.”
