A sports story that could be of interest to even the non-athletically inclined: Is this superstar lady runner really a fella? And why does a "gender test" take "several weeks" to complete? What are they looking for down there??

South African 800 meter runner Caster Semenya is totally dominating all the other ladies in the world and pretty much shattering times and all that, and she has lots of muscles, too. IS SHE A MAN? Just have somebody take a look, right? No, says the Daily Mail:

A group of doctors, including an endocrinologist, a gynaecologist, an internal medicine expert, an expert on gender and a psychologist, have started the procedure but it is uncertain when the results will be known. The complex process could take several weeks to be complete.

"Complex process?" We do not understand this at all. Just do the ol' "accidental knee to the groin" test! Two seconds!

Athletic competition and gender studies meet at last!
