    "A gender test on South African teenager Caster Semenya has revealed that she is a hermaphrodite, threatening to end her track career just weeks after her runaway 800 metres triumph in last month's World Championships in Berlin."

    This is from the UK paper The Daily Telegraph, link:

    The tests carried out on the 18 year-old shortly after her victory in Berlin are believed to have shown that she has a chromosomal abnormality that gives her both male and female characteristics.

    According to reports in the Australian media, the medical tests have established that she has no womb or ovaries and that she also has internal testes – the male sexual organs responsible for producing testosterone.
