Don't panic folks. Tennis survived Renee Richards (Richard Raskind), track and field will survive this.
As far as Semenya goes, I don't think the multitude of 1:59+ white girls have much of a chance to podium in the 800 anyway.

I heard that one of them was competing in one of the combative sports... but can't confirm...
We have rags like Huffington Post to thank for this situation.
I think that the person I spoke to was confused and believed that MMA fighter Tamikka Brents was one of the athletes, based on this Breitbart article:
â€œIâ€™ve never felt so overpowered in my life,â€ Brents said after her quick defeat. â€œIâ€™ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I canâ€™t answer whether itâ€™s because she was born a man or not, because Iâ€™m not a doctor. I can only say Iâ€™ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female.â€
