Talk about humiliation and embarrassment. And after just doing a cover on a magazine where they glammed him/her up. Reports now indicate the athlete is a chick AND a dude! Wonder how the black church will explain this one? She really should sue the sh… out of the organization for humiliation. Part of this is her family’s fault. They knew. They should have given her the honor and the option to just step down without saying sh…. This is wrong on so many levels.
Sex tests carried out on Caster Semenya, the world 800 meters champion, show that she is a hermaphrodite, a source close to the case claimed tonight. Test allegedly indicate she has no uterus or female reproductive organs but that she has both male and female sex organs.
If the allegation is backed up by the results, the South African may well find herself stripped of her gold medal and banned from racing. The IAAF, the world governing body, refused to comment on the claim tonight, but earlier in the day its general secretary, Pierre Weiss, said: “It is clear that she is a woman but maybe not 100 per cent.” Leonard Chuene, the president of Athletics South Africa (ASA), which has been vocal in its criticism of the IAAF, said: “We cannot get involved in gossip of this sort. Our people will speak to Caster and ensure that she puts these rumours from her mind.”
