Olympic 800 metres champion Caster Semenya filed an appeal to Switzerland’s highest court on Wednesday against rules requiring middle-distance female athletes with a high natural level of testosterone to reduce it via medication.

Semenya is quoted to have said “I am a woman and I am a world-class athlete. The IAAF will not drug me or stop me from being who I am.”

Semenya lost an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on May 1 which ruled the IAAF’s rules were necessary for athletes with differences in sexual development to ensure fairness in competitions.
