    it is a shame that the issue came to public attention, but it needs investigation (unusual concentrations of testosterone).

    However, it is wrong that the SA are claiming racism and sexism; it’s not helpful

    It reeks of racism, jealous melanin deficient competitors and the gender police.

    there are too many queations for it to be that easy. If gender didn’t matter then why have sexed sporting events, rather than a free for all? The definition of male and female is flexible socially; when it has a direct effect on performance we need to recognise it.

    Calling racism is a copout bearing in mind the treatment of eastern bloc competitors during the soviet period
