          Presumably someone other than Steve Cram and Tim Hutchings who are on the BBC tonight?

            No woman with higher than normal testosterone should be allowed to run in ANY all-women's event!
            She's a woman, but she has an unfair advantage over women with natural levels of testosterone!
            Same goes for Niyonsaba in the distances!
            Their testosterone levels are natural.

            It's the source of those natural levels that are the problem, so I understand.

            And if that is the source then Mboma is not a biological woman, at least IMO.

                  • Well I think by next year they will have to go back to the drawing board on these events because Mboma will be in Eugene and perhaps medaling again and Niyonsaba will definitely be carrying home a Gold medal thats for certain. She has another year to play with.

                        I've not been entirely following the stance on the DSD athletes. So what exactly could be done, I don't necessarily think its fair to banned them given that this stuff is natural. So would them taking stuff to reduce their testosterone levels be morally wrong?

                          It's definitely overdone for me. It's like 'the wave'. The novelty has worn off. If its spontaneous or the Oly like you say, fine. But, now it's an obligation for everything? It's like the John Prine song where he put so many flag decals on his car that he couldn't see. I don't think you run the Diamond League for your country, really and it seems a couple winners weren't so interested in the flag (and it wasn't a protest, more like they had other things on there mind).

                            this is not the thread for discussing this non-news topic

                              I'd have to watch it again, but I'm pretty sure a couple of the athletes were draped with the flag (US flag) upside down--with the stars on the bottom!
                              That was the fault of the people who put the flag on the athlete's shoulders!
