Say What? Runner Caster Semenya on Her New Life

"I know who I am. I can't change what [people] say. . . I am a fighter. I never give up. And I knew I was going to get better."

— South African sprinter Caster Semenya has opened up to the media, after officials at the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) publicly called her sex into question this past August. The controversial sex test reportedly revealed that Caster is intersex, and next Friday the IAAF is set to rule on Caster's case. The organization could either ban Caster from competing, require her to undergo surgery, or allow her to compete as she is.
