According to the test Athletics World governing body Caster Semenya is a woman? and a man. Now that is a loaded and complicated matter ..she ?he or both..Semenya has no womb or ovaries and her testosterone levels are more than three times higher than those of a normal female, according to reports. Semenya is? hermaphrodite, with both the female and male organs. There is now chance that she might be stripped of her world title won in Berlin last month.

The IAAF is expected? to advise her to have surgery to fix the condition. Earlier it was reported that IAAF decided to allow Semenya to retain her title regardless of the outcome of the test but according to Autralia?s Daily Telegraph Semenya?s future participations in championships is in doubt.

So if one is both a man and woman?does that mean she..he can?t participate on what the others are doing? ?This might seem to be very complex but she is a human being who happen to have some abnormalities in her body. Semenya is both? woman and a man, so she should be allowed to decide who she want to be. She decided she is a woman and so be it, let her participate in sports as a woman.
