South African olympian, Caster Semenya has filed a suit at the European Court of Human Rights.

Her lawyers said yesterday that the two time olympian was going to the European Court of Human Rights to challenge perceived discriminatory world athletics regulations.

Caster Semenya is currently prohibited from competing in certain women’s track events unless she medically lowers her naturally high testosterone levels.

The 800m winning athlete has overly lost two legal appeals but her lawyers say that there has been a violation of her rights.

They want the human rights court to examine the rules before the delayed Tokyo Olympics which are set to open on July 23rd.

The Olympics could be Semenya’s last chance at The games. Previous sports cases that have gone to the European Court of Human Rights have taken years to be decided.
