olympic athlete ordered to take hormone suppressants


McKenna Cole, Managing Editor

Mokgadi Caster Semenya is a South African middle-distance runner and 2016 Olympic gold medalist. Semenya has naturally occurring high testosterone levels, she has recently been told by the International Association of Athletics that if she wishes to compete, she will have to take hormone-suppressing drugs and reduce her testosterone levels below 5 nanomoles per liter for six months before competing, and maintain those lowered levels. BV Tiger Print sat down with Varsity golfer Lauren Reddin, Varsity Cross Country Captain Molly Holmes, and staff commentators to discuss this controversy.
