'When I pee, I pee like a woman' - Caster Semenya hit out at those questioning her gender












South African Olympic champion and intersex athlete, Caster Semenya, has again come out to angrily react to those questioning her gender after having done verification tests eight years ago.

In a rare interview, Caster who is gearing up for the London World Championships to compete in the 1500m as well as 800m described what it felt like to have her entire existence questioned by people.

Speaking to Dr. Ali Bacher on SuperSport, the renowned runner said it felt like the entire world had seen her stripped naked.

"I don't understand when you say I have an advantage because I am a woman. When I pee, I pee like a woman. I don't understand when you say I am a man or I have a deep voice," she said.

Caster explained that the entire process left her confused, but she didn't let it overpower her inner-strength.

According to her, she was dumbfounded by claims that she changed her gender when she was younger.

"How the hell can you change gender in the rural areas? I am a woman. We don't have good doctors, we are not rich to do such procedures," Caster said.

In 2009, After Semenya won the world title as a 19-year-old, tests reportedly revealed that she was hyperandrogenous, resulting in her body producing an abnormally high amount of testosterone, which makes her more powerful than her rivals.

Although, before she won the world title competitors raised concerns over whether she was eligible to compete as a female. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) confirmed at the time that Caster had undergone a gender verification process.

The 26-year-old South African who is a favourite for the 800m at the London World Championships, is, however, focusing on making history and not getting distracted by her gender controversy.
