Santhi Soudarajan, 25, was made to take the gender test in Doha, Qatar after her victory.
The test reports sent to the Indian Olympic Association on Sunday say said she “does not possess the sexual characteristics of a woman,” The Times of India reported. The test was administered by a medical commission set up by the games’ organizers.
Admittedly, it’s a little easier for women to pass as men in India than it is elsewhere.
The gender test isn’t mandatory, by the way. They can ask you to take one if they have reason to believe you’re not, um, “qualified” for the event.
I wonder what tipped them off.
