Caster Semenya’s bronze victory at the IAAF World Championships has sparked another debate about her gender. 

But Semenya says she has no time for ongoing discussions about her hyperandrogenism -- a medical condition characterised by excessive levels of male sex hormones.

The renewed debate comes after Scottish athlete Laura Muir finished seconds behind Semenya despite leading for much of the race.

The IAAFsaid Semenya's condition gives her an unfair advantage over rivals.

The BBC has faced strong crititism   after it aired a debate questioning the athlete's condition.

"I have no time for nonsense," said Semenya.

"Like I said before, my focus is more now for me getting healthy and compete."

More people have to look at this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you're not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.|

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours
    and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me
    an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
