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.


They're not track and field athletes, if indeed they do exist.[/quote]

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.

Scratch that.

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:

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/07/07/transgender-male-olympic-athletes/

“I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life,” Brents said after her quick defeat. “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor. I can only say I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female.”
