Caster won the gold medal in the women’s 800m with a time of 1 minute 55.28 seconds. Her testosterone levels were the subject of controversy, as she suffers from hyperandrogenism, “a condition that naturally produces higher levels of testosterone in women,”.

Due to the fact that her testosterone levels wer unnaturally high for a female, she underwent a whole lot of scrutiny. She has been previously banned from competition and made to undergo gender tests. One Olympic official is reported to have claimed that she was not 100 percent female, and competitors calling her a man.
