The South African Runner Who’s Too Fast to Be a Real Woman


Caster Semenya, the 18-year-old South African runner who is sweeping the competition, is too good to be a real woman. And look at all the muscle! She must be a he! So concerned about an unfair gender advantage, the International Association of Athletics Federations forced Semenya to take a DNA test to prove she’s really a lady. What’d the results show?

Nothing, yet! The results won’t be in for several weeks, apparently. And until there’s any evidence to show that Semenya (pictured, leaping over the other gal) is actually a guy, she’ll be able to compete. Like she’s doing tonight in Berlin.

And if Semenya really is a guy? Well, at least she’s hiding her package better than Lady Gaga.

At least her coach is being a good sport over the controversy:

Meanwhile, the teenager’s coach told South African media she was aware of the controversy surrounding her.

Michael Seme told South Africa’s News24 website: ‘We understand that people will ask questions because she looks like a man. It’s a natural reaction and it’s only human to be curious.

‘People probably have the right to ask such questions if they are in doubt.

‘But I can give you the telephone numbers of her room-mates in Berlin. They have already seen she has nothing to hide.’
