Mokgadi Caster Semenya is a South African middle-distance runner and world champion. Semenya won gold in the 800 metres at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics with a time of 1:55.45 in the final.
Following Semenya's victory at the 2009 World Championships, questions about her eligibility to compete as a woman in athletics events were raised
A report in Daily Mail claimed that Caster has three times more testosterone than a normal female and will be advised to have an operation because her condition carries grave health risks.
It added that she has internal testes – male sexual organs which produce testosterone and which in turn produce muscle bulk, body hair and a deep voice.
The official results of the tests have not yet been released
Today Yahoo blog writes “Caster Semenya, the 18-year old at the center of one of the biggest gender scandals in sports history, withdrew from a weekend race in South Africa amidst unconfirmed reports that her gender tests have revealed that she has both male and female sexual organs”.
It s one of the interesting and weirdest case in the history of sports. South Africa is behind Caster; let us see how events unfold. Whether Caster will be stripped off her medal or world accepts her winner. Time will tell.
