They're all sick and exploring the medical loopholes to the extreme. Do we need the stuff from weightlifting when entire nations are banned because of systematic doping?

IAAF blew it hard when they allowed Justin Gatlin, a repeated doping offender to compete like nothing happened and people went nuts over this jerk so now they will clamp down on Semenya hard. And I'm fine with that. Neither she nor Wambui nor Niyonsaba should compete without severe testosterone restictions.
What are the issues with Wambui and Niyonsaba?

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta McHale Zarina Qiang Lizette Danielle Dayana Amanda
Elina Min Garbiñe Sachia Luksika Yafan Niculescu Sofia Sloane Franny Crawford Patty Shelby
Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov Sock F.Lopez Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga Khachanov Sugita Chung
