Caster has three times the normal female level of testosterone in her body, and head coach is Dr Ekkart Arbeit
SHOOT: What people want to believe - South Africans anyway - is that despite appearances, Caster is what she claims to be. She may well be a woman, and I'm quite sure she is, but has she been sporting, has she been innocent in terms of her preparations? But who is interested in evidence; that is, hormone levels and performances that are out of sync with the progression in track athletics. You have to ask, when an athlete suddenly breaks records by jaw dropping margins, whether this is 'normal'. 3x the testosterone levels don't suggest 'normal'.
