When a new world track champion confuses the authorities.
Welcome to the World Championships were authorities are trying to figure out whether sudden overnight sensation Caster Semenya is who she say she is- that is a girl.
Overwhelming authorities with her new records and her gender authorities have been forced given the unusual appearances of Caster and the unusually deep voice to issue a battery of tests to once and for all get to the bottom whether Caster is a boy or a girl.
Likely ‘fun’ tests require a physical medical evaluation and includes reports from a gynecologist, endocrinologist, psychologist, internal medicine specialist and gender expert. How about all that to get you out there again beating new world records?
In any event it promises to be an interesting next couple of days as authorities hold off before presenting Caster her or his new gold medal.
When gender even confuses a sports race.
