Caster Semenya


I think it is a real shame what is going on with the questioning of the gender on the South African 800 meter World Champion Caster Semenya. Let’s not try this in the court of public opinion, wait until the tests determine her gender, this is a complex issue that most of us are not qualified to offer opinions on. If you want visual evidence why did we never question the gender of Maria Mutola or the current world record holder in the 800 meters, Jarmila Kratochvílová. Look at these pictures, is appearance proof enough? No way! I rest my case. Let’s shut up and let this young girl enjoy her success.
