Semenya gender testUPDATE: A source close to this case revealed that the world 800 metres champion Caster Semenya is indeed a hermaphrodite. Get the full story below.

South African track and field sensation Caster Semenya is getting so much heat these days due to some allegations and questions about her real gender, prompting IAAF to conduct a verification test. But even the harshest criticisms did not deter Semenya as she won the 800-meter gold medal at the world championships.

However, there’s still a possibility for Semenya to be stripped of the gold depending on the results of the gender test. Defending champion Janeth Jepkosgei was second and Jennifer Meadows of Britain was third.
