    (January 7, 1991- )
    Born in Pietersburg, Limpopo province, South Africa
    Middle distance runner
    Zion Christian Church member
    Commonwealth Games 800 m winner (2008)
    International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships 800 m winner (2009, Berlin, gender called into question)
    Testing concluded that Semenya is a hermaphrodite (September 2009)
    Her career in association football came to a halt at age 14 — over roughhousing the other players!
    Shortly before her Berlin win (1:55.45), the IAAF wanted her to undergo gender verification. Following the win, other runners called for the same thing.
    If you spoke to her over the phone, would you think it was a woman?
    In light of the controversy, she nearly refused to take the podium (asking the national athletics president, ‘why did you bring me here? You should have left me in my village at home!’)
    At least Usain Bolt – to whom has compared her – only has to worry about steroid testing!
    She loved being one of the boys, relating more to the activities of her brother than of her three sisters.
    IAAF officials insisted she was to test for a medical condition related to chromosomes.
    She survived the exact same type of ordeal that claimed the career of a runner from India.
    The African National Congress nicknamed her ‘our golden girl.’
