    3 missed tests outweigh 11 passed tests.
    Three is too many. One I can understand.
    Numerous passed tests mean little in track and field. All athletes who cheated passed more than 11 tests. Some...

    Rudisha was the gold medalist at the 2016 Olympics but at the trials he almost did not qualify. He struggled to finish 3rd, gritting all his teeth so hard that he might have had to see a dentist...

    So you admit the Kenyan trials are tough but you insist that it will still be easy for Cheserek?

    Which is it? Tough or easy

    You can't use the word "Easily" and "Kenyan trials" in the same sentence. There is nothing easy about Kenyan trials even for the best athletes.

    First off the trials are held at altitude which is...

    Steeplechase is for natural hurdlers. In America parlance, "people who have hops"

    Ferguson Rotich has excellent speed. Over the last 50 meters he looks faster than Rudisha and more like Konchellah and Ereng. I theorize he can go around 45.50 in the 400m if he trained for it.

    It has everything to do with this circumstance. There is a time to celebrate and there is a time not to celebrate.

    As for the dream team. Charles Barkley showed a lot of crudeness / lack of...

    No. Its considered having class. I have seen many international players score a goal and refuse to let their team-mates celebrate.

    I specifically remember Cristiano Ronaldo playing for Man U in...

    This is another lame argument I keep seeing online. The idea that its okay for genetically male XY athletes to compete against females because they don't win all races or in this case because they...

    I am sure you know that this is not just about elite athletes. The same issues applies in every level be it high school, college and in every country even those that don't produce Olympic calibre...

    Most of the public people support semenya on this issue. Most are not track fans and are behind semenya because they see this as a human rights issue. Also the media has told people that this is...

    A Swiss court has jurisdiction over IAAF and can overrule CAS?
    I am confused

    I was thinking the same thing. It would be hillarious. As I said earlier, the new IAAF rules kinda don't make sense. Testosterone is not the only factor that makes DSD people faster. I guess IAAF...

    IAAF, IOC, FIFA and other global bodies have been encouraging corruption in nations like Nigeria and Kenya for years. They send money to these national associations and don't demand accountability....

    Kenya's bronze medal in the mixed 4 X 4 was thanks to a blistering 3rd leg by that woman Hellen Syombua.

    And they finished 4th the men's 4 X 200m. Thats quite an achievement for Kenya, a...

    Its important to note that the rule only applies to those with XY chromosome. So high testosterone by itself will not disqualify an athlete.

    The point is that all Sporting Organizations have categories. If you do not fit in one category, you can still compete in another category.

    By the same token, semenya can still compete. She is...

    Nothing you've said on this thread is complex, science based or even factual. Just an appeal to emotions. Sorry life decisions are NOT determined by people's feelings on an issue.

    I laughed because I can't tell if you are trolling or trying to create a twitter meme or are actually serious.

    Either way, I can't debate based on emotions. I focus on science. Even when it comes...

    Why is it a horrible analogy?

    Every sporting body must set criteria that people must meet in order to fit in a certain category. Its high time IAAF was allowed to define criteria that must be met...

    Everything in this sport takes a long time. It has taken IAAF 10 whopping years to get this ruling. My sense is that IAAF thought they could win this case if they focused on a few events at a time....

    Perhaps some people wanted to compete in the IAAF U20 contest. They have no control over the fact that they are way over the age limit. Maybe they too aare being ostracized and punished for...

    Does anyone know what criteria IAAF used to come up with the list of restricted events?
    Are they saying that testosterone does not offer an unfair advantage in say the Javelin?

    Yes
    In April 2011 IAAF set a T limit of 10nmol/L.
