CALL FOR WITHDRAWAL OF DISCRIMINATORY ATHLETICS REGULATIONS

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


The IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) has introduced new eligibility regulations for female classification, making it necessary for women athletes with elevated testosterone levels to reduce their testosterone levels medically for events "from 400 m to the mile, including 400m, hurdles races, 800m, 1500m, one mile races and combined events over the same distances".

These new regulations, approved by the IAAF Council in March, are to come into effect on 1 November 2018.

As many athletes – men and women – have naturally elevated testosterone levels, the IAAF's new eligibility regulations are DISCRIMINATORY unless they are applied to –
all athletes (testosterone levels should be set for both men and women, and hormone reduction treatment prescribed for all levels higher than those set);
all IAAF events (track, field and combined); and
all biological factors that could influence athletic performance (e.g. height).

We, the undersigned, therefore call on the Court of Arbitration for Sport to rule that the IAAF should review or repeal the new eligibility regulations for female classification.
