Apparently he's quoted as saying "we're not saying no forever" whilst going on to talk about a working group to do further research.
And this is only for international ranking events, so not sure where it leaves lower levels of competition.
But, it's a massive step in the right direction, which makes a change.

That is great news. I'm sad if it restricts athletes with DSD who have grown up as women but this will benefit the majority of women athletes 😀
Unfortunately, if they have gone through male puberty then they have a physical advantage. Hopefully in the future there may be a third category created or something - which should have been considered all along.
Well done to the women and feminist groups who have been pushing for this for years.
