Folks, it is actually very simple: The unfair advantage that Caster Semenya has can be safely taken away from him by surgically removing his endogenous testicles. That would bring his testosterone levels back down to completely normal levels. He has refused to do that.
The other way is to have him take medications that lower his testosterone levels. He was doing this. That is why his times slowed to about 2:00 for the 800m. But recently the IAAF discontinued that requirement. So he stopped taking those testosterone lowering meds. Now his testosterone levels are back up again and he is running 1:55.
This article explains this reversal of the rule:
"the existing hyperandrogenism regulations law was suspended for two years â€“ allowing any female athlete on testosteroneâ€‘suppressing medication to come off it."
So there you go. Semenya is no longer on those meds. As a result his testosterone levels are back up again. His previous 2:00 for the 800m would not even make the semi-finals. His 1:55 for the 800m won the Olympic gold medal. Such is the difference that this new IAAF rule has made for Semenya . . . and for Niyonsaba and Wambui.
Those with 5-ARD hyperandrogenism have a significant advantage. To put things into perspective, normal testosterone range for men is 10 - 35 nmol/L (nanomole per liter), with an average in the low twenties, and for women it is 0.35 - 2.0 nmol/L, with an average of about 1.5.
The testosterone levels of athletes with 5-ARD is around 21 nmol/L.
If you surgically remove the endogenous testicles, a 5-ARD person would see their testosterone levels go completely down to normal. So less than 2.0 nmol/L.
** But if you lower your testosterone levels with medications, you can play around with the numbers. The IAAF has set an upper limit of 10 nmol/L. So you can just bring your T levels down from 21 nmol/L to say 8 nmol/L. Even though you still have T levels that are four times the level of the average woman, you are allowed so by the retarded IAAF rules!
This is a deeply tragic travesty of justice, in the name of bullshit political correctness.
To all you PC SJWs: Catching my drift? Or am I being obtuse?
