Caster Semenya’s lawyer Gregory Nott said that he is preparing to challenge rules which prevent the South African athlete from competing over certain distances at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

The 29-year-old is an Olympic 800-metre gold medallist. She twice has been ordered to take medication to lower her naturally high levels of testosterone. Both times she was unsuccessful in appealing the rulings.

Semenya lost her latest appeal which was heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) as well as the Swiss Supreme Court.

Nott told Agence France-Presse they are preparing the paperwork for a case at the ECHR, a process which he said could take a few more months.
