Azeri sportsmen’s genders to be defined in Beijing Olympics


Baku – APA-Sport. The gender of the sportsmen to join 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games will be defined, APA-Sport reports.
The organizing committee has established a new lab on this purpose. The experts will view the sportsmen first. If any doubt, they will take test in hormone, gene and chromosome. Beijing medical College is to announce the final results a week later.
The sportsmen passed the same tests in previous Olympic Games as well. More attention was paid on the issue after the event in 2006 Asian Games. Indian athlete Santi Sundarajan took the second place in women’s competition. After the race he took an anti-doping test which caused a doubt in medical brigade of the contest. It was later found out that the silver medalist was a male. Asian Olympic Committee deprived the sportsman of his medal for cheating. After Indian Olympic Committee made him give up career, Sundarajan attempted to commit a suicide.
