Margaret Nyairera, Kenya's 800m bronze medalist is a worried athlete after she was enlisted in the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) list of female runners with high testosterone levels in their systems.

Nyairera has raised fears that she might be banned from participating in international events, which she says will bring her career to a halt, as is the case with her South African counterpart Caster Semenya.

Nyairera rejected IAAF's ruling earlier in the month which dictates that all athletes with such characteristics seek special medication to suppress the testosterone levels in their systems.

Speaking to Game Yetu, a sports section in the Standard newspaper, the athlete noted that she is not sick, and cannot, therefore, be subjected to medication.

"I am not going to take medication because I am not sick and those are chemicals you are putting in your body. You don't know how it will affect you later," she said.

She detected bias in the rules, wondering why men with high testosterone levels are not harassed.

She added that the new regulations have demoralised her to an extent that she no longer feels like training.

"I am very disappointed. I don't even feel even like going on with the training because you don't know what you are training for," she said, adding that she has not been dopping.

She now wants the Kenyan government to come to her rescue, as it the case with Semenya who is enjoying massive support from her government and leaders.
