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."

    I've been browsing online more than three hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    It's appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest
    you few interesting things or tips. Perhaps you can write
    next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it!

    No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, thus he/she wishes to be available
    that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
