Mandla Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela, has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport not to discriminate against the two-time Olympic champion Caster Semenya. He has adopted a relevant decision amid discussions on the new IAAF rules.
New conditions suggest that female athletes with naturally elevated testosterone levels should take suppressants before running in middle distance competitions.
The two-time Olympic champion Caster Semenya is challenging the rule and waiting for the verdict on the matter now.
The Royal House of Mandela has joined the Hands Off Caster Semenya movement. Mandela, in his turn, has urged South Africans to stand against IAAF’ iniquitous interference.
