Report: Gender tests done on runner in SAfrica
A South African newspaper has published what it says are e-mails showing local athletics officials authorizing sex tests be done on runner Caster Semenya, AP reported.
South African officials have repeatedly said that tests were done only abroad, not in South Africa before Semenya's 800-meter world victory.
In e-mails published Friday by Mail & Guardian, general manager of Athletics South Africa Molatelo Malehopo apparently gives team doctor Harold Adams permission to "go ahead" with tests requested by the international athletics body.
ASA president Leonard Chuene was copied in on an earlier e-mail to Malehopo asking for advice on handling the "confidential matter."
Neither Chuene, Malehopo nor Adams were immediately available for comment.
