I agree, I have a great deal of sympathy, and the worlds media (as usual) have acted in a disgraceful manner. Not that they will ever change.
BUT..... I have to be realistic here, if she does have large amounts of male hormones, she cannot be allowed to compete against women. They are not allowed to pump themselves with testosterone, and she is technically just going to take a gold medal from somebody.
It must be an incredible blow to her, to find out that her dreams will most likely be left in shatters.
She has three times the amount of testosterone normal for women. I have a high amount of testosterone, and a friend has twice the normal amount. Once the testes are removed this will drop significantly. Or if she decides to not undergo surgery, there are medications that help to level out the hormone.
Oh ok, well hopefully they can 'fix' her (that sounds really bad). As long as they are convinced that she no longer has an advantage over the other female athletes, then I can see no problem with her competing. But until that point, I suppose it would be unfair. I cross my fingers for her anyway.
Well the test results have been leaked already, thats what this thread is about. The world knew the results before her..... thanks to Australian media. Its disgusting that they didnt have the decency to allow her to be told first. I hope that they enjoy the extra traffic to their website.
November is actually the date that the International body for athletics (cant remember what it is called sorry) might be IFFA or something...... are making a decision and announcement in relation to the test findings.
