LAUSANNE – Olympic champion Caster Semenya’s fight against the International Association of Athletics Federations in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland concludes on Friday.

Semenya is opposing newly proposed regulations by the IAAF, which wants female athletes with high testosterone levels to take drugs to reduce the levels.

The court case started on Monday and is being heard behind closed doors.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee says the IAAF's regulations have no place in South Africa or international society. 

On Thursday Semenya issued a statement refuting claims that the government has paid R25-million towards the case and confirmed she has funded by private donors.

The verdict is expected by end of March.
