Indian Sprinter Targeted by Olympic Gender Rules
Dutee Chand was the future of India’s Olympic sprinting hopes, but her athletic career is in doubt due to her naturally high testosterone levels. The 18-year-old has been removed from her national team and was disqualified from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow because she has the hormone at a concentration usually found only in men. She’s now at the center of the debate over gender testing in international athletics. “I am who I am,” Chand insists, rejecting the possibility of “corrective” treatment.
