Swiss court suspends IAAF rules barring Caster Semenya

The Swiss Supreme Federal Court has suspended the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) regulations affecting Caster Semenya's ability to run.

Semenya has challenged a rule forcing her to lower her testosterone levels to compete with women, even as judges labelled the regulations "discriminatory".
