“Hermaphrodite with no womb or ovaries”

Shock claims: Caster Semenya celebrates her 800m victory in Berlin last month amid an international row over whether she is a man or a woman

The world of athletics is reeling today after a claim that South African champion runner Caster Semenya is a hermaphrodite with no womb or ovaries.

A Sydney newspaper claims it has a world exclusive in revealing the very private information about the sex of the 18-year-old runner.

Quoting a source closely involved with the IAAF, the Sydney Daily Telegraph said Semenya had internal testes - male sexual organs which produce testosterone and which in turn produces muscle bulk, body hair and a deep voice.

But does she have a vagina? This would qualify her as a woman. She did do the photo shoot which showed her "softer" feminine side. We are all different. Hopefully this is soon settled. Athletes, male and female, bodies tend to show more muscle since they do some strenuous exercising
