[Olympics] China Forced To Test Athletes Gender

 This is a very shocking and interesting story. Who would think that countries are so eager to win that they would get into gender doping. Very scary indeed.

Olympic host Beijing has set up a sex determination lab to test female Olympic athletes suspected to be males, state media reported Sunday.
Experts at the lab, located at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital, will evaluate dubious cases based on their external appearance and take blood samples testing sex hormones, genes and chromosomes, Xinhua news agency said.

Sex testing has been routine at the Olympics and other sports events for decades, triggered by fears that male athletes sought to cheat by posing as women.

Indian athlete Santhi Soundarajan was stripped of an Asian Games silver medal in 2006 after failing a gender verification test.

  1. your headline is erroneous and misleading- not only is nobody “forcing” Chine to do gender testing, the International Olympic Committee abolished the practice years ago.

    It is only because Asian sports authorities still do so that it is happening in Beijing.

    And contrary to the implication presented here, there have never been any men trying to cheat the system discovered through this testing- the athlete in the photo failed a gender test because the gender tests used by Asian sports authorities do not take into account congenital intersex conditions, and act as if there are only two combinations of X and Y chromosomes possible, when in reality there are women BORN with XY genotypes (like the athlete pictured) and men with more than one X chromosome.

    What is also highly offensive is that only those who present as female are being tested, despite the fact that a male who takes hormones to transition to female actually *loses* muscle and body mass…the exact opposite of what would enhance athletic performance. Meanwhile, a naturally large muscular woman could take testosterone (absolutely a performance enhancing drug) to bulk up even further and compete as a man against men who are required to be drug free…but nobody is testing for that.

  2. If I was a man pretending to be a woman I’d have the hair, the makeup, the implants the clothes, and they say they are basing initial tests on appearance. How insulted would you be, I know I would, excuse me madam? please madam? er can we do a gender test on you?
