    This spring, the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld rules imposed by the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) limiting the participation of female athletes with high levels of testosterone. On the other side of the decision was Caster Semenya: a South African runner who has repeatedly been penalized by sports officials throughout her career. The IAAF has gone through many iterations of their female regulations throughout the past decade, and Caster Semenya has been targeted with each successive policy. Most recently, the regulation has been a testosterone limit of five nanomoles per liter.

    Throughout the past decade, the media has been following Semenya's story closely and shaping a narrative that is often misguided or inaccurate. In this video we piece together the underlying issues relevant to sex testing in sports and contextualize them within the long history of scrutinizing female athletes. By covering the controversy surrounding 2016 women’s 800 meters Olympic gold medalist Caster Semenya, along with historical events concerning Polish sprinter Ewa Klobukowska and Indian sprinter Dutee Chand, the goal is to help explain how athletic officials have repeatedly failed in their attempt to establish definitive sex testing regulations for female competitors.

    Why doesn’t everyone compete in their testosterone levels? If there were a bunch of different leagues, like five, and everyone got tested, it would be so simple. The less testosterone leagues would be mostly women and the ones in the middle would be mixed, and the ones at the higher end would be mostly men! Great idea!
    Oh wait, that’s not the only factor and there would still be people who had advantages or disadvantages and women and men would have to share locker rooms and foot size and height and coaching and gear and a whole bunch of other things

    Also it’s not like she would be allowed to compete with men. Castro is being banned from sport all together.

    BROO, how is it 'questioned'' whether high levels of testosterone increases athletic performance. There's an ANOBOLIC (Meaning muscle building) STEROID literally known JUST as ''testosterone''.

    im probably going to get some heat for this. but as a figure skater, i understand the testing. males with higher testosterone in my sport can land the quad axel (4.5 rotations) however females with lower testosterone can not get past the quad jumps (4 rotations). this would obviously give them an advantage. however, there comes a point where it is unfair to other competitors. maybe there is a better way to separate competitors. i would love to hear other opinions!

    You guys can't be serious. Lol. If you go through puberty and then transition into being a man, you have ready received the benefits of puberty, no matter how much hormone therapy you do. You guys are silly. Men are simply stronger than women. Look at all works records for anything involving strength or physical prowess.
