Intersex Athlete and Women’s 800 Champion Told to Reduce her Testosterone Levels if She Wants to keep Competing with Women

South Africa’s Caster Semenya competes in the women’s 800 meter race and consistently defeats the women in the race by 3-4 seconds.

She is the Olympic champion.

The runner from Pretoria has raised eyebrows due to her stocky, muscular physique and apparently masculine characteristics, including facial hair and a deep voice.

Semenya, in black, is married to a woman. Caster admitted his wife thought he was a man when they first met.

Caster Semenya was born intersex. She has both female and male organs and a very high testosterone level.

This past week the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) ruled that Caster will need to lower her testosterone levels to compete with women in the future.

After her latest race this weekend in Doha, when asked if she would take testosterone-limiting medication, Semenya told Al Jazeera: “Hell no.”

She is just fine with her high testosterone levels and thinks it’s fair for her to compete with women.

British female runner Lyndsey Sharpe is receiving death threats after the IAAF ruling this week.
