Caster Semenya defiant after 800m win: 'Actions speak louder than words'

South African runner Caster Semenya has brushed off the controversy surrounding her legal battle with athletics’ governing body after a dominant 800m win in Doha. ‘Life is fantastic,’ she said, denying rumours she would retire. ‘I want to inspire the world – I want to show them nothing is impossible.’

The Court of Arbitration for Sport’s ruling this week means she will have to take testosterone-reducing medication to continue competing on the international stage.

    XY means male. XX means female. It really is just that simple. If you’re XY with female genitalia then something screwed up during the foetal process, and you’d get what in the olden days would be known as a hermaphrodite, but still MALE.

    Its difficult because black women look exactly like black men. Same..its only when you put a weave and lipstick on one you get female..I've seen many thousands of black women without their wigs and without fakeup that I've had a hard time deciding whether they are male or female
