The new 800 meter women’s champion is a South African named, Caster Semenya. She ran the race in a stupidly fast time, 1 min 55 seconds, beating the previous world champ by 2 seconds (which, in football terms is like, Selangor FC beating Manchester United 6-0). It was incredible.
So incredible, people are wondering if Semenya is really a… man.
Apparently, the IAAF takes several weeks to perform the tests and publish the results. Why would it take so long? Just ask her to drop her pants and take a look. A 5 second test, at best.
I don’t really doubt her feminity. But her picture makes me wonder: if women athletes look like that, it means you’ve sacrificed a lot to train your body to be the best in the world.
