The two time 800m champion made the decision following recent court battles with IAAF who restricted her on pitch competition over testosterone levels.

28-year-old Caster Semenya appealed the decision that meant she had to use testosterone medication s or change to another competition.

Since then Semenya has been fighting to have her way through the tracks until July when she made it public she won’t be defending her title.
