The mother of South African track and field star Caster Semenya has produced a birth certificate showing the runner is female, the BBC reports. "I have no doubt about what I see. It's a girl," said Dorcus Semenya despite calls that Caster take a gender test. Caster fell under scrutiny after becoming the world's 800-meter champion this week in Berlin.
"She is not rejoicing. She didn't want the medal," said Athletics South Africa President Leonard Chuene. "She told me: 'No-one ever said I was not a girl but here," at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin, "I am not. I am not a boy." Semenya reportedly asked Chuene why be brought her to the competition. "You should have left me in my village at home."
