This is such a talker especially when you see the video and you are trying to decide for yourself. She trounced the competition, blew them away to win the 800-meter-race at the World Athletic Championship in Berlin. But is the 18-year-old a woman? That's the question that a lot of people are asking.|
Yeah, the debate going on and how what painful things to have to go through. I mean , you know, people just look at the build, and that's what they have to base it on. And also how much that athlete, she was able to blow out her female competitions.
After Caster Semenya posted a world best time of African Junior Championships 3 weeks ago, track's governing body, the IAAF, asked the South African Athletic Federation to administer a gender test. Then on Wednesday, the 18-year-old, unheard of until the summer, pulled off a stunning win in the Women's 800 Meters at the World Championships, further fueling speculation. The IAAF confirmed there are currently two investigations underway, one in South Africa and one in Berlin where the World Championships are taking place.
You know quite frankly, for this, uh this young lady again, no reason to believe her. Her daddy says she is his little girl. So nobody has a reason to believe otherwise no matter what she may appear to be. But, I mean, your heart has to go out for her to be going through this right now.
Well, her family is consistent in saying this is how God made her and she qualifies under any kind of testing or any kind of scrutiny, in family's position, South Africa's position. Bottom line, though, is as far as the testing is concerned, you know, it was discontinued in 1999 because scientifically it's hard to identify unequivocally. There are some sexual ambiguity issues.
