Double olympic winner Caster Semenyalla is a woman of exceptionally high testosterone levels. It gives him a huge advantage when he races other women against.
the International athletics federation IAAF saw the benefits so significant, that it created a so-called Caster Semenya rule. Last year came into force rules to force abnormally high testosterone levels are woman decrease to the hormone levels with medication.
the Rule has been appealed to the Sports international court of arbitration of the Cass. For example, Semenya says it is wrong that he is not allowed to compete freely be himself without drugs.
I Want to run as I was born. Not fair, when people ask me who I am. I'm a woman and I'm a fast, Semenya found in connection with the appeal.
CAS has promised to tell the outcome of the complaint next week.is Not only one case
If the appeal goes through, it would change the Paula Radcliffe according to the total women's sports.
– It opens the door for transgender athletes, who can only say, that we don't need to decline in testosterone, we don't need to go for surgery, we can be exactly as we want and compete with women in the series, Radcliffe's assessment.
– It would be the women's sport of death.
Radcliffe, the problem is not only Semenya.
If it was just one athlete, which is the highest testosterone levels, I don't think that we would be in this situation. But it is a number of athletes, whose number may still grow.the Major advantages of caster Semenya has won both the world championships and the olympic gold in the 800 meters. AOP
Radcliffe know how significant the benefits of high testosterone to women get.
the Fact is the fact that their body has gone through male puberty, and is thus stronger, Radcliffe said.
They also don't need to think about menstruation. They don't need to worry about how they deal with race around the. These are things with which all the female athletes are forced to get along. But if the competition you against, which they are not, it is unfair.
Radcliffe has been subjected to a feedback cascade in the middle, after he has told the honest opinion trans gender in athletes. Him however, this is not a problem.
– the majority of those who are attacking me, wouldn't dare say the same things face to face.
the Feedback the bigger problem is Radcliffe, the fact that many athletes don't know the facts.
– It is dangerous, because there are a lot of vulnerable athletes, who do not know how to distinguish between what is true and what is not. Someone said something truthful, but the second is just a troll.
Paula Radcliffe has won the mm. the marathon and half-marathon world championship gold medal. In addition, the women's world championships in the 10,000 meter and cross country world championships.
