Dutee gets further relief in Hyperandrogenism case

Bhubaneswar: The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) today suspended the proceedings of Odia star sprinter Dutee Chand's 'gender case' seeking more evidence in support of its Hyperandrogenism Policy.

'The CAS has now issued an order by consent of the parties by which this proceeding is suspended for a period of six months, during which the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Hyperandrogenism Regulations remain suspended,' the CAS stated in a media release from Lausanne in Switzerland.

During this period, the IAAF is to advise the CAS as to how it intends to implement its regulations moving forward. If the IAAF decides not to withdraw its current Hyperandrogenism Regulations, then these proceedings will resume before the same Panel of arbitrators.

If the IAAF withdraws the Hyperandrogenism Regulations and/or replaces them with the proposed draft regulations it has submitted, then these proceedings will be terminated.

On July 27, 2015, in a Court of Arbitration for Sport case between Chand and the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) and the International Athletics Association (IAAF), the CAS made an interim decision to suspend the world body's Hyperandrogenism Regulations for a period of two years.
