Neither here nor there

A great summary of the surprisingly complex issue of sex testing in sports can be found here. This has, of course, been prompted by the sudden dominance of Caster Semenya in the final of the women's 800m race at the World Athletics Championships. I hope she's legit, but I have to say she reminds me uncomfortably of Jarmila Kratochvílová.

Good point, although the author misses the fact that the division of sports into men's and women's categories is already the kind of handicapping she's railing against.
