I’m certain many of you have read about Caster Semenya and the controversy over her “true” gender. I suggest reading The New Yorker’s “Reporter at Large” in-depth coverage of Caster’s case. This article has been nominated as one of the Best Science Writings of 2009 by some critics. The report not only details the medical history of gender disorders and related Olympic athletes controversies (Caster isn’t the first, nor will she be the last), but it provides a beautifully written, comprehensive account of the biology and genetics of the disorder. This issue will continue to remain controversial with the Winter Olympics approaching, I imagine. Even if Caster’s performance in regards to time is questionable, you have to admit she has eloquent running form engendered by the most elite runners.
