Monte-Carlo – The IAAF has noted statements in recent media articles regarding the athlete Caster Semenya of South Africa.
We would like to emphasise that these should not be considered as official statements by the IAAF.
We can officially confirm that gender verification test results will be examined by a group of medical experts. NO decision on the case will be communicated until the IAAF has had the opportunity to complete this examination. We do not expect to make a final decision on this case before the next meeting of the IAAF Council which takes place in Monaco on November 20-21.
Please note that there will be no further comments from the IAAF on Caster Semenya until that time.
