    What about the 100 and 200?

    No. As DoubleRBar said, it's just the 400 through the mile, so far.

    I simply don't get the reasoning here. It seems to me that Test levels would affect the 100 and 200 to an even greater degree than longer races where the % of aerobic goes up. Hmm...
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    Empirically, there have been awfully many intersex women (and accusations of excessive masculinity) in the 800; and the 800 also has one of the highest percentage differences between the men's record and the women's record. (Among the regularly contested distances, it's a close second to the 5000.)

    The current rule is based on an extensive study that was limited to the events covered by the rule.

    we covered the testo rules and the "logic" behind them ad nauseum on other threads. Let's not turn this into yet another rehash please.

    What would be fascinating is if Semenya wins the 3,000. What will the IAAF do then?

    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 are hoping that even if she wins, she will not blow everyone away as she does in the 800m

    We should have Laura Muir and Shelby Houlihan in this race.
