Good 1st round by her. 

Nice, pretty girl, too.

She'll meet Castor's aMan-Ye too.

Well done to the lady, hopefully she will have a medal chance in this Olympics.

Excellent news that she's progressed and at least looks like a woman!  A very fit one at that in more ways than one!

There was hardly anyone there last time she was at Ibrox IIRC. Hopefully a full house for her Olympic medal...

Hope she wins gold. Good luck Lynsey.:541:

Me too, but I don't think that Lynsey herself believes she can beat the South African laddie, so silver is probably the best she can achieve  :animal:

No chance of gold as she's against that man/woman (who shouldn't be allowed in the ladies race tbf) but really hope she gets the silver.

Semenya's personal best isn't even in the top 7000 men's times in history. This idea that it's like a man running against the women is hilariously wrong.

She shouldn't be there. Was hoping she'd do the 400m though and crush everyone for a laugh.

I'm not laughing.  So it's a not very good male runner against women.

Her testosterone levels are around 3 times that of a typical female athlete.

Excessive testosterone is banned for a reason, and why she has been required to take drugs that reduce testosterone levels (it does seem a bit counter intuitive to take drugs in order for her to compete)

It is not her fault that her genetic make up means that she has a number of male characteristics and is missing some female ones.  However as a "female athlete" she does have an advantage over the other competitors.

Semenya, 18, has three times the amount of testosterone that a "normal'' female would have. According to a source closely involved with the Semenya examinations IAAF testing, which included various scans, has revealed she has internal testes - the male sexual organs which produce testosterone. Tests revealed the South African world champion has no womb or ovaries.
