SA athletics chief suspended over Semenya sex tests

semenyaThe president of Athletics South Africa has been suspended for lying about his involvement in the Caster Semenya gender row.

Leonard Chuene and the ASA board have been stood down by South Africa's Olympic ruling body, the SASCOC, pending a disciplinary investigation.

The 18-year-old Semenya, who won the women's 800 meters gold at the world championships in Berlin in August amid speculation over her gender, has also received an official apology from the SASCOC.

Chuene had initially denied knowing that athletics' world governing body, the IAAF, had commissioned a gender test on Semenya before the championships.
