United Nations adopts resolution to support Semenya

22March 2019

Geneva - The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Thursday adopted a resolution tabled by South Africa to defend athlete Caster Semenya's rights to participate in sport.

The resolution, adopted in the 46th session by consensus and without a vote is aimed at eliminating discrimination against women and girls in sport, giving significant global weight from a human rights perspective to Semenya's case.

Semenya, a world champion in the 800m, is challenging proposals by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) that aim to restrict female athletes' testosterone levels.
