Boy I hope Phillyfan is seeing a differant picture to me, or he has it badly wrong, although according to some he has the sex right. I believe that is Eva Klobukowska. Female bronze medalist in the 100m and gold medalist in the 4 x 100 m relay. However she later failed a sex test, and was declared a man, although apparently she later had a healthy child!!

Wnat to know more about intersexism in sport? no oh well I will post the link anyway!

how the :censored: can you fail a sex test?? makes no sense, or can't it tell what sex it is

Failed a sex test!!

I failed a few maths tests in school 20 years ago, but that puts it in perspective.

As for intersexism in the world... :shocked:

I'm a bit like that guy in the movie Broken Arrow.

"I'm not sure what's worse, that someone's stolen a nuclear weapon, or that it happens so frequently we have a code for it."

Adapt that for intersexism.

For those too lazy to read the article, basically said athlete (boy odo I hope its the right answer now!) was born with an extra chromosome, so as she had two X chromosomes (As a woman would have) and a Y chromosome (which denotes a man) She I believe had the outer appearance of a woman as well as female sexual organs, but that extra chromosome messed up the test!

You sure know your Olympic trivia Saintsfan, and Phillyfan, some would say that you're lucky you can't see the posted photo! :blink:
