Semenya accuses IAAF of treating her like

Paris, France: Double Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya on Tuesday accused world athletics' governing body the IAAF of treating her like "human guinea pig".

"The IAAF used me in the past as a human guinea pig to experiment with how the medication they required me to take would affect my testosterone levels," said Semenya.

The South African is locked in a bitter dispute with the IAAF over the federation's rule requiring women with higher than normal male hormone levels, a condition known as hyperandrogenism, to artificially lower their testosterone to compete in races at distances of 400m to the mile.
