This issue so complex. It’s nothing to do with racism, feminism or about the genetic advantage of a single person. The effects of elevated testosterone on performance can’t be ignored. I truly believe this is in the interests of protecting female athletes’ rights and competition.
No one doubts she is female, it’s her testosterone levels that are at issue. So sick of this issue being played by those who have an agenda beyond sporting fairness. I feel for the other women 800m athletes who have lost out massively.

Transgender is different and I understand Navratilova’s point. If you are born and grow up male you cannot be allowed to compete in female sports simply because you ‘identify’ as female. It makes a mockery of the definitions of male and female sports categories.

I wonder if one way of making things fair is to rule that taking any drugs that adjust someone’s performance to improve or even lessen their abilities should be banned. I don’t think it is fair for instance to medicate in order to qualify for a sports category.

Only if you think that it's fair to essentially exclude the vast majority of female people from competing at the top level of sports
