Caster Semenya: Olympic champion cleared to compete

    Semenya burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old at the 2009 world championships in Berlin

    (CNN)Runner Caster Semenya will be allowed to compete without having to take testosterone-reducing medication after a Swiss court ordered the International Association of Athletics Federations to suspend implementation of new regulations while Semenya's appeal is pending.

    The court ruled that the two-time Olympic 800-meter champion, the dominant force in women's middle distance running, is clear to race in events of all distances, according to a news release.
    Semenya reacted with a Tweet saying "Born a winner," and an image with the quote: "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
