THE controversy over gender row champion runner Caster Semenya deepened today — after reports claimed sex swap tests have shown she is a HERMAPHRODITE.
South African gold-medallist Semenya, 18, has both male and female organs, it was claimed.
Semenya is claimed to have NO womb or ovaries — and has internal testes, the male sexual organs which produce testosterone.

So she is basically producing testosterone which makes her more male then female. He just has a micro penis with his testicles located in a different place.
urine tests showed that, despite her having higher than average male hormone levels, they are within the official limits for a woman.
It's a he and not a she.
While the IAAF are treating the Semenya case as a health matter, with her eligibility to compete in women's athletics very much a secondary issue, the same South African politicians who denied AIDS was a problem in their country are now blindly standing behind their new queen of the track.
"Well of course Caster is a totally innocent victim in this whole affair,'' the source explained. "What could she do about it? And the IAAF accepted her entry. So the two parties at fault are the IAAF and especially Athletics SA. The South Africans have got a massive responsibility, but no one seems to be attacking them.
"Basically they (ASA) have known for months, for years, that she's not normal. They could have set in process these kind of tests if they had been more responsible.''
Further, the athlete's father has stated to the media that the althlete never had an interest in dolls or other typically 'girlish' things .. and refused to wear dresses, lifelong. In fact, according to the father, the althlete insisted on wearing boy's uniform to school from the outset, which in itself reveals that the althlete did not regard him/her self as a 'girl' and indicates the school was in agreement, all of this taking place long before the current controversy.
