Did you actually even watch the Rio 800m final? Fellow competitors like Sharp or Jozwik called the testosterone bullshit long before that. Semenya rose to prominence in 2009 but was then issued a testosterone therapy and her results got more creditable. Still, the likes of Colin Jackson claimed she threw some races not to look so dominant and suspicious. I can only guess whether you know who Colin Jackson is.
Moreover, I firmly believe she can break Kratochvilova's WR if only she wanted but she doesn't since that would have been the ultimate guilty verdict IMO.
