Caster was subjected to intrusive 'gender-verification' tests without consent
A 163-page document has revealed how athlete Caster Semenya was subjected to two intrusive "gender-verification" tests without her consent when she was 18 years old.
The court records from the South African runner's appeal of the international track body's testosterone rules at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in February have been reported on by CBC News.
Joanne Joseph spoke to South African law professor Steven Cornelius to discuss the details of the report.
He says this is only one of the horrifying aspects that came out of the case.
