Caster Semenya, Cover Girl


South African track star Caster Semenya graces the cover of You magazine sporting a new, more feminine look. Amid testing following accusations that the 800-meter world champion may not be biologically female, Semenya emphasizes how much she likes her stylish outfits, glamorous jewelry, and stiletto heels.

"I'd like to dress up more often and wear dresses but I never get the chance," she says, according to The Guardian, a U.K. newspaper. "I'd also like to learn to do my own makeup."

Preliminary results of hormone testing indicate that the 18-year-old South African has three times the expected level of testosterone compared to other women. Semenya clocked the world's fastest time this year in the 800-meter finals at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in Berlin. Since then, Semenya has been asked to undergo gender testing.
