The Run For Life
In May 2019, the IAAF held a press conference in which they addressed the issue of their self proclaimed “Female Eligibility Regulations”. The press conference was meant to oer clarity to those questioning their previous statement in which they had said that “The Panel found that the DSD Regulations are discriminatory but that, on the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, such discrimination is a necessary, reasonable and proportionate means of achieving the legitimate objective of ensuring fair competition in female athletics in certain events and protecting the “protected class” of female athletes in those event” (site reference - https://www.iaaf.org/news). This Q&A session left many more confused than before they had begun to try and explain the blatant inability to comprehend the scope of a few athletes’ behaviors.
