To clarify (since there is confusion): Semenya is at the appeals process in Swiss Federal court. Today’s ruling is that the IAAF DSD Regs requiring her to lower T must be suspended until a final decision on her appeal. The IAAF have until 25 June to argue against this “delay”
What does this mean? Final decision by this court is expected to take 6 months. So one scenario is that the IAAF can’t convince the court to overrun the “delay”, so all DSD athletes can continue to run, unmedicated, until December. Then the final decision will decide the future
Another is that the IAAF does win their “mini appeal” against the stay, and then the policy would go into effect from June 25. Then the actual appeal continues in the background for 6 months. This is the “on, off, on, off, on” scenario, pending a final decision by the Swiss court
Regardless of which plays out (and of course there are two outcomes possible at the end of all this in 6 months), the suspension today makes for a very, very complex situation for the IAAF, because it messes up their timelines for eligibility ahead of World Champs
More significant, long term, is whether suspending the DSD Reg hints at chances of a successful #semenya appeal? Is it a signal of early perceptions from the Court? I wouldn’t begin to speculate on this yet. Plus, I know too little of the machinations of this legal system anyway!
