So what is the truth about Caster Semenya? What's more, will her fragile teenage psyche ever recover from the damning remarks about her looks?
One man who knows the answers is Caster's father. A gardener for the local council in Polokwane, formerly Pietersburg, he is a shy, private man.
But as night fell last night, he sipped on a Coke and spoke for the first time in depth about the strange little girl he fathered - who has never worn a dress in her life.
Jacob Semenya's life has been turned upside down in the few days since his fourth daughter discovered that, if she has too many male characteristics, she will be stripped of the gold medal she won in Berlin and return home under a cloud of shame.
She has never had a skirt, only trousers. But I used to change her nappy, and I know she's a woman.
What better proof do people need? Caster and her friend Debbie Morolong. Caster always preferred to dress as a boy and kept clear of any girly games.
He cheered after her gold medal victory but felt physically sick when the news came through that she was to have the gender tests. This is all very painful for us, we live by simple rules in our culture.
We do not intrude. This is not natural. To go through such an unusual thing must be very hard for Caster. I really have been concerned for her well-being.
However, Caster phoned home from Germany and was very stoical about her plight. She said: "Dad you know me, I'll be fine.
I'm not fussed. Like countless South African men, Jacob Semenya works and lives away from home, returning to his family only once a month to give them his wages.
Caster and the rest of his children grew up in the village of Fairlie, deep in South Africa's northern Limpopo province.
Built on a remote African plain and accessed by a single dirt road, most people work as farmers and labourers.
When Semenya was born in , her father was so determined to earn enough to look after her that he worked away from home for weeks.
With three daughters, Jacob had desperately wanted a son. He got a girl - albeit one with many of the characteristics of a boy. I was just very proud to have another child.
I was not allowed to check the baby's gender for myself. That's the job of the elderly women, who then make a pronouncement.
Then the old women of the village take it away and the man is handed his child. This week, I thought of how tiny she once was.
I still feel very protective of her. Caster grew quickly, becoming taller and more thickset than her friends even as a toddler.
She was preoccupied with sport - she never played with dolls. She was a good deal bigger than the other schoolgirls. Caster has a strong, muscle-bound build which made her good at athletics at school.
She is pictured here last year during schools athletics. She hated the romantic films loved by her sisters - and used to fight with them because she wanted to watch old wrestling and karate highlights.
She spent the rest of her time playing football with her male cousins. But her powerful physique quickly started to cause problems. She was disqualified from playing women's football by the age of 14 - the coaches said she was too rough with the other girls.
The coaches said she was a "hard mama" - too tough and too big to play. They disqualified her from the women's team and she couldn't play with the men, so her career was over.
She was upset, but didn't cry. Nor, as a young was she interested in the other obsession of her fellow female pupils: boys.
But Caster has never been interested in any of that. Instead, months after being drummed out of the football team, she discovered a new passion for running and began training after school under the tutelage of her headmaster, Eric Modiba, who says he initially thought Caster was a boy.
She never wore a dress. It was only in Grade 11 that I realised she was a girl. Her few female friends also noticed that Caster was not like them.
But that doesn't mean she is not a girl. In an attempt to end the controversy about her gender status, her family yesterday showed the Mail a copy of Caster's birth certificate.
It backs what her friends, family and teachers insist is the case: that the year-old is a woman, albeit clearly with some male characteristics.
The certificate confirms her birth date as January 7, and clearly states 'female' under the section marked 'gender'. Written in Afrikaans and English, the one-page birth certificate includes Semenya's full name, Mokgadi Caster Semenya.
The document also lists her ID number and confirms her country of birth as South Africa. Semenya's sister Nkele, 16, said: 'This is proof that my sister is a girl.
She was a girl when she was born and she is a girl still. Hopefully this will stop people making rumours about her. Fellow teacher Moloko Rapetsoa said: 'Some schools, suspecting that she was not a girl, even demanded that her status be checked.
But each time they returned from the toilet, she would be cleared and the competition would resume. It seems unlikely that so many people could lie about Caster Semenya's sex.
Now, medical experts are speculating that she may be a quirk of nature - a woman with either under-developed male sexual organs inside her body, or an abnormal number of male chromosomes.
There is also, of course, speculation that her sudden improvements in running times and classically male physique suggests she has been using performance-enhancing drugs - which raise testosterone levels and can lead to male characteristics developing in women.
For all her talk of her 'toughness' and thick skin, it emerged last night that this young girl from rural Africa has been deeply hurt by all the comments about her looks.
Many local media reports highlighted these frustrations and challenged the validity of the tests with the belief that through Semenya's testing, members of the Global North did not want South Africans to excel.
The IAAF said it confirmed the requirement for a sex verification test after the news had already been reported in the media, denying charges of racism and expressing regret about "the allegations being made about the reasons for which these tests are being conducted".
Semenya properly". He apologised for personally having failed to protect her. He had previously lied to Semenya about the purpose of the tests and to others about having performed the tests.
He ignored a request from ASA team doctor Harold Adams to withdraw Semenya from the World Championships over concerns about the need to keep her medical records confidential.
Prominent South African civic leaders, commentators, politicians, and activists characterised the controversy as racist , as well as an affront to Semenya's privacy and human rights.
The results of the sex tests, however, were not released for privacy reasons. Not being in full form, she did not enter the World Junior Championships or the African Championships , both held in July , and opted to target the Commonwealth Games to be held in October After the controversy of the previous year, Semenya returned to action with a moderately low profile, running only In the final, she remained in the front of the pack leading into the final straightaway.
While she separated from the rest of the field, Mariya Savinova followed her, then sprinted past Semenya before the finish line, leaving her to finish second.
Caster Semenya was chosen to carry the country's flag during the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics.
She passed six competitors in the last metres, but did not pass world champion Mariya Savinova of Russia, who took gold in a time of In November , the World Anti-Doping Agency recommended Savinova and four other Russian athletes be given a lifetime ban for doping violations at the Olympics.
The International Olympic Committee reallocated the London medals, and Semenya's silver was upgraded to gold.
The IAAF policy on hyperandrogenism , or high natural levels of testosterone in women, that had been in place since  was suspended following the case of Dutee Chand v.
On 16 July, she set a new national record for metres of Semenya won the bronze medal in the metres at the World Championships held in London.
On 1 May , the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected her challenge, paving the way for the new rules to come into effect on 8 May Semenya has appealed the decision to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland.
For that reason, Semenya missed the World Athletics Championships in Doha in October , while continuing her appeal. In July , Semenya said that the ongoing issue has "destroyed" her "mentally and physically".
In , Semenya announced that she had decided to switch to the meters for the Tokyo Olympics , in order to avoid the m to one mile ban.
In , the British magazine New Statesman included Semenya in its annual list of "50 People That Matter" for unintentionally instigating "an international and often ill-tempered debate on gender politics, feminism, and race, becoming an inspiration to gender campaigners around the world".
