I have been watching the athletics this evening after getting in from work and the commentators were talking about the issues surrounding South African female athlete Caster Semeny.

Well is she, in fact a she?

If she's not is it fair?

Have a gander at this video and decide.

see video at 58secs and then at 2.55 to 3.10 (pay particular attention to 3.02 onwards)

and this one

The section of video on the BBC TV coverage is far more "revealing".

The thing is that she/he does look very much different from all the other girls on the track,most of them still have a very much recognisable female shape under all that training.....

Of course it might just be that she is female,but a complete swamp donkey that fell out of the ugly tree....and not only got hit by all the branches on the way down....but got over dosed on steroids and testosterone at every flat-shovel smack to the face as well.

She does have feminine features. There is a possibility that she may have XXY chromosomes, which means that she may genetically be female, but has male characteristics. Dont be too quick to judge her.

For a moment I thought we were going back to the bare foot runner Zola Bud. Anyone remember Decker Slaney?
Oh dear, Mary and that trip. There were tears that day.
Any buy the record "It's a long way to trip a Mary" it was on the "Decker" label :p
