    I completely get why she’d keep fighting, but with all the rhetoric about her doing it for human rights and to fight the sexist IAAF, she lost some support. I hope the IAAF look to spread to all events, though, as it’s crazy to keep to a small handful, as you have to imagine strength events would also benefit, for example.

        Her appeal is still on the table to try to overturn the CAS decision, this was just a reversal of the position that the Swiss court had taken to suspend implementation for her only whilst the appeal was in process.

        I hope the rules do get upheld for simple clarity and moving forward purposes, much as I am on record on this forum as being in some doubt as to whether I am in 100% agreement that the rules are necessary at all.

        It would have made a nonsense to have her allowed to compete at Doha, but other DSD athletes who haven't appealed but also who haven't medicated, unable to compete.

        I wonder when the appeal against the CAS ruling will have a decision?
