Opinion: Why the IAAF’s latest testosterone study won’t help them at CAS

The deadline for the International Association of Athletics Federations (‘IAAF’) to submit evidence in support of its Hyperandrogenism Regulation, which was suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (‘CAS’) two years ago, is the end of September 2017. Katrina Karkazis, Senior Research Scholar at the Center for Biomedical Ethics at Stanford University and Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz, a chronic disease epidemiologist, dissect the evidence published by the IAAF in support of its testosterone regulation, and share their opinion on whether the findings stand up to CAS’s requirement that the IAAF must show that female athletes with higher T have a performance difference that approximates what male athletes typically have over female athletes, which CAS places at between 10-12%.
