Does the name Dutee Chand ring a bell?
If not, remember that she is the Indian sprinter who filed the action against the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) that got its rules on testosterone levels in women thrown out by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Chand was dropped from the Indian team for the 2014 Asian Games due to concerns about “female hyperandrogenism” and she appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Her case, decided in mid-2015, resulted in the suspension of the IAAF’s rules limiting women’s testosterone levels pending better research.
Chand began competing again in 2016 and the IAAF returned with more detailed findings about advantages of high testosterone levels in women earlier this year. The new study led to rules limiting testosterone in women competing in events from 400 m up to the mile (now being challenged at CAS by South African star Caster Semenya).
That leaves Chand, 22, a sprinter, in the clear and she won silver medals in the Asian Games in Indonesia in the 100 m (11.32) and 200 m (23.20).
She competing in the Rio Olympic Games and the 2017 World Championships in London; she has personal bests of 11.29 and 23.00, both set this year.
