High Testosterone Levels Found In South African Sprinter Caster Semanya

Tests have revealed that South African sprinter Caster Semanya, who was accused of not being female after blowing away the competition at the track and field world finals, has three times the normal level of testosterone in her system. This does not necessarily prove that she has been doping as some women naturally have such a result. But very interestingly, it turns out her coach is the same former East German coach who was once accused of feeding so many steroids to a female athlete that she was "forced" to have sexual reassignment surgery and now lives as a man. More gender tests on Semanya are continuing, much to the outrage of her countrymen, who see racism in the investigation.
