Just seen this story of South African sprinter Caster Semanya’s makeover has hit ‘most read’ on the BBC website. Wondering what you make of it? Here is the front cover of the magazine who did the shoot.
The BBC has learned that the South African runner, Caster Semenya, will be allowed to keep the gold medal she won in the eight-hundred metres World Championships last month — regardless of the results of gender tests.
A spokesman for the governing body of world athletics (Nick Davies) told the BBC it would be legally very difficult to ask Caster Semenya to hand back her medal because the IAAF had allowed her to take part in the race. South African leaders accused the IAAF of humiliating Caster Semenya following the allegations that she was a man. (The BBC’s Sports Correspondent says the gender tests continuing and are unlikely to be concluded for another two weeks.)
