    You cannot diagnose KK with anorexia, a mental health disorder, by looking at her on a TV screen. Period point blank.

    I mean, that's pretty basic stuff, any qualified medical professional knows...

    It is unethical to make women with DSD take hormones when they are not needed. It is unethical to treat a woman with DSD as male.

    As for her advantage, yea it is in question. Because I have yet...

    Thank you and exactly. I have seen the same stuff on Twitter - I follow you! - and have seen all the medical community stand firm in support of Semenya, including world experts from all over the...

    And therein lies your patriarchal hypocrisy (and I don't mean that in a nasty way). KK is a highly fit individual, just like the male throwers. And yet you are concerned by her build (and are...

    the Klosterhalfen kerfuffle

    I have no doubt the concern is sincere and genuine. But you cannot diagnose anorexia simply by 'seeing it' unless its fairly extreme. What is happening here is he/she is looking at someone who...

    No she didn't. She did not grow as a man. She is intersex and grew as an intersex person. When she hit puberty she developed a mixture of male and female primary & secondary sexual characteristics....

    I think it's inappropriate because you are not her physician and you have no idea of her medical status and history. You are simply looking at her on TV and making an inappropriate assumption....

    But you have to look at the context. She lost her speed maintenance and top end when she went from Benemma to Reider. Reider destroyed all her strengths. She is now back with Benemma from mid-winter...

    why are some still talking about Semenya's appearance? We know she has intersex traits, and actually there are many more female sprinters with far more muscle than her, yet no one is talking about...

    Let's bookmark that. She's been on the podium in 14,15,16, 17 & 18. She's switched coach again and was injured in March. She has 12 weeks. And she was .2 behind DAD compared to .4 in her last race....

    What a bizarre race. All this talk of so many fast women and the winning time didn't even break 11!

    SAFP just bothered about collecting her cheque. Bowie nowhere either. Richardson 4 x10ths down...

    In Mannheim, world long jump leader Mihambo ran her first 100 heat in 11.21 (0.6) to match Daryl Neita, and then just an hour later ran 11.13w (2.4) to beat Neita (11.21 again)
    Massive PB from the...

    I understand dropping the 200 in the context of doing the 100 and LJ. Doing both sprints and the LJ is tough, and that's why so few athletes have been able to excel at all 3. The 100/200 is still...

    And a world under 18 record at that! Mannheim is fast, but that time was still a shock!

    Elsewhere, former teen sensation Jody Williams runs 51.22A over 400m.

    It makes sense on the one hand to go through the national Feds , as they are the ones having to pay the athletes flight etc. Some surely may not want to send athletes with non Qs if they aren't...

    I'll put my hand up and say I'm guilty of writing Bowie off at this point in time. Mainly because SAFP and Thompson are in their best form ever, and Bowie isn't (based on her recent street race)....

    So if Bowie is now in the 100 and not the 200, and after her interview online implying she is targeting the 100/LJ in Doha, it looks like she is dropping the 200 this season, which is a shame.

    The women's 200m is a pretty hot field, and it may be the only time we see Bowie v Thompson v Schippers v DAS over 200m this season. The only significant name missing is Miller-Uibo (no offence to Ta...

    22.52 in the 200 hts from SAFP. A leisurely 22.98 from ET.

    SAFP has only run faster 8 times over 3 seasons (2015, 2013, 2012). I wonder if she'll attempt the double in Doha?

    The good thing about having your NCs in June this year is you can peak and then still have a 12 week cycle to prepare for Doha. I think if they were in August it would be more difficult.
