3" African women who were banned from the Olympics for being manly. No 3" is from South Africa

Although it is said that Olympic status is the most essential thing, several athletes have already earned a medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Imagine being able to enter a competition but being unable to do so due to legal constraints.

Many athletes are prohibited from using drugs, but others are prohibited because they are too manly. Most female athletes have testosterone levels ranging from 0.12 to 1.79, and a woman competing in the 400 m - 1 mile should not have more than 5nmol / L. on other women.

 Athletes must push themselves physically to deal in order to remain stable, but three African women have been barred from competing in the Olympics because they are men.

 1. Annet Negesa

Annet was 29 years old and was born in Uganda, where she began breaking and writing as a youngster. He earned gold in international and African tournaments while representing Uganda.

She received a phone call from an IAAF doctor in 2012, when she was 20 years old, telling her that "she will never go to the London Olympics again because her testosterone levels were too high to participate," which she claims gives her an unfair advantage over other female athletes.

 2. Margaret Wambui

Margaret, a well-known 800m champion, earned bronze medals in both the 2016 Rio Olympics and the 2016 Portland Home Games. He is Kenyan, however he will not compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics due to a ban he received in 2019 for having too much testosterone in his system.

 3. Caster Semenya

 South Africans, who can run 800m faster than anybody else in the world, won gold medals in 2012 and 2016, but due to excessive testosterone levels, they will be unable to defend their championship in Tokyo.


Women who desire to participate in women's activities but have high testosterone levels should now use hormonal contraceptives to lower their testosterone levels.
