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. Earlier analysis had revealed that Semenya's testosterone levels were three times the normal level for a woman.
