Same with one of my brothers, but not for quite as long.
The day his birth was to be registered his front bottom changed shape somewhat, so he was registered as a male and my mum had to think of a new name, as he would have been unhappy being called Mary for the rest of his life...
Drug tests can be instigated for winners, especially winners by some distance, so why the outcry! She did afterall win by a country mile so to speak as she was yards ahead of the second placed. It is not unknown for trans-gender atheletes to compete in events, born a male and changed to female minus certain anatomical bits! So should we really be surprised that this test has been called for in this day and age where winning a prestigious event can lead to many other more profitable areas!
A good way to sort this out once and all would be to abolish separate events for men and women. This way you could scrap half of the existing events, and you would only have the best runners, long jumpers etc. in each event.
