South African middle-distance runner Caster Semenya is to challenge a female classification rule imposed by the International Association of Athletics Federation.

The double Olympic and triple world 800 metres champion faces having to take medication to lower her higher than normal levels of naturally-produced testosterone, which the sport's governing body has deemed gives her an unfair advantage.

Testosterone is a hormone that increases muscle mass and haemoglobin in the blood.

 

Today’s racing is in Naas from 5.40.

Reminder: This evening’s Kildare Scoreboard from 6.30 will review the weekend Kildare sport.
