    It is just that to me and to quite a few people in my circles that share my view on the subject.

I would hope if some steepler runs 8:45 this year and is found to have sky-high, male testosterone levels, or some high jumper jumps 6-9 and is found to have sky-high, male testosterone levels, that the IAAF will "target" them as well. That should be our expectation.
    Since the new rule applies to only 400m to mile, Semenya could still enter steeple and run 8:45, if she is good at clearing the barriers. After all, Chepkoech ran a second faster last year, and since the even is still young I expect many people to threaten that record in the coming years.

    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.

    In other words, her natural testosterone levels are well beyond the IAAF's 4:1 T/E limit, yes? Or am I missing something else here?

    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 not banned.

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

    Thanks Professor. Ad hominem attacks and ludicrous exaggeration are yours. Oh - and grammar. Lol.
