The study is based on Gender which is a state of being male or female and its distinction is based on different concepts that are sex, gender, feminine and masculine.
Gender is range of characteristics which helps in differentiating between females and males. In accordance with controversy of Semenya the decision on her sexual dimension is made when she blew away 800 meter race in Berlin where gender test took place and team manager of south Africa stated that there was no cheating on part of Semenya and she entered as woman and she will be working in that way (Controversial Semenya wins women's 800 metres, 2009). The gender test of Semenya will be set as precedent with the help of which no female athlete will be liable to experience delay in series for making determination.
Gender intersect occurs after the race where she won 800 meter race in 1 minute 55.45 seconds (Caster Semenya is Woman Enough for the IAAF, After All, 2010). It was important for the people to decide if she was female or male because she managed to cut 8 secs in her time of running within 9 months which is remarkable in history of females athletes (Segrave, 2018). In accordance with reading I analysed that Caster is female athlete but was questioned become of increasing competitiveness because of which IAAF athletic world’s governing body set her controversy and judgement as precedent.
The assessment summarized about Caster Semenya who was questioned for gender as she managed to won the 800-meter race with remarkable time.
