Dutee Chand beats testosterone and IAAF to compete for Rio


The Court for Arbitration in Sport (CAS) has ruled that India’s Dutee Chand is for all purposes, a woman, even more so when it comes to competitive athletics.

The hyperandrogenitic condition that produces a higher amount of natural testosterone than in most women is not conclusively proved causative of better or improved sporting performances.

This is a first for women in general and definitely a first for an Indian sportsperson of any gender.

The Rio Olympics beckon.

Can Dutee Chand make the best of the chance proffered her in time? Can she then bring home a medal?

What a turnaround that would be.

What  a complete news story it would make.
