JOHANNESBURG (AP) - South Africa's top track official is returning to the board of the international athletics governing body to fight for a runner whose sex has been questioned.
Athletics South Africa announced on Sunday that its president, Leonard Chuene, was returning to the International Association of Athletics Federations board. Chuene says his decision to leave it was taken "emotionally."
The IAAF ordered sex tests on women's world 800-meter champion Caster Semenya. It has refused to confirm or deny media reports that Semenya has both male and female characteristics.
The IAAF says it is reviewing the results and will issue a final decision in November.
South Africa accuses the IAAF of violating its own privacy rules in Semenya's case.
