JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's Caster Semenya wants answers after being barred from competing in Sunday's Diamond League meeting in Rabat.

This despite the Swiss Federal Supreme Court rejecting the IAAF's urgent request for permission to re-impose its eligibility regulations on the two-time 800m world champion.

The rejection by the Swiss court means Semenya can continue to compete without any restrictions in the female category.

The athletics governing body still has until 25 June to make submissions on its request to have Semenya suspended throughout the appeal process.
