Caster Semenya has revealed that she viewed her troubles with International Atheletics Federation as a fight for human rights after not being allowed to defend her world 800m title at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

This follows the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) rule that required her to take testosterone reducing medication.

Caster  said she believes she is entitled to compete without being forced to alter her body by any medical means.

The South African government also stepped in, supporting her, and this was done at the level of the department of sport, arts and culture by asking the relevant minister to address the media about what steps would be taken.
