Runner Gender Test Draws Apology


reports, wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


PRETORIA, South Africa -- South Africa's top track official apologized Saturday for denying knowledge of gender tests done on runner Caster Semenya in the country, saying he lied to protect the athlete's privacy.

Athletics South Africa president Leonard Chuene told reporters that his constant denials of the tests, which he said he was aware of when they were done in early August, were an "error of judgment" and that never meant to "deceive" the public.

South African officials repeatedly said tests were done on the 800-meter world champion only abroad, not in South Africa.

"I can no longer stand before you and say that I am not aware of gender tests conducted on Caster Semenya," Chuene said. "I felt that at the time I was acting in the best interests of Caster Semenya as a person. I believed at the time my consistent denials would help protect her."
