Update: Caster Semenya
An ex-coach of Caster Semenya has confirm that she or he was born as a hermaphrodite. The South African, who won the women's 800m in Berlin, was told by the IAAF that she had to undergo testing to confirm his or her gender.
It's been reported that around 120 hermaphrodites are born in Germany each year and undergo a sex change operation to transformed their penis into a vagina or vice versa.
The unnamed coach told the Swiss tabloid ‘Blick’ that Semenya is not a woman.
According to this unnamed coach, a genetic test was conducted back in March to determine Caster's gender by officials within "South Africa".
The unnamed coach has stated that these results were clear and Semenya should've been banned from competing with the "women" at the World Championships in Berlin.
He also shared that during previous "testing" methods, additional medication was given to Caster that altered her or his testosterone levels.
Results from these test wasn't shared with Caster nor her family members.
