Athlete's family reject hermaphrodite claims

NZ Herald News: "The family of South African runner Caster Semenya has rejected claims that she is a man, hours after reports that sex tests showed she had male internal sex organs.

An investigation into the gender of the 18-year-old began after concerns were raised over her masculine appearance following her victory in the athletics world championships 800m last month."
