“Following its final review of the athlete’s case, the Expert Medical Panel shall be asked to make a recommendation as regards the athlete’s eligibility to compete in women’s competition based on her reported androgen levels7 and taking into consideration any androgen resistance that she might have.”8
The SAI has given Chand the option to lower her androgen levels through surgery. In the mean time, the SAI will allow Chand to train at NIS Patiala as a Centre of Excellence12 trainee, while bearing all of Chand’s cost for training.
