On 27 July, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (‘CAS’) delivered a landmark ruling on the regulation of gender in sport. The decision explores how the categorisation of sport on the basis of sex can be best reconciled with the “biological reality” that human sex cannot necessarily be divided so clearly. Dr. Seema Patel, Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, Deputy Director of the Centre for Sports Law and author of ‘Inclusion and Exclusion in Competitive Sport: Socio-Legal and Regulatory Perspectives,’ reviews the case and suggests that sport regulation must be cautious of traditional criteria to determine eligibility in sports.
