hyperandrogenism incidence rate of 71 per 1000 female athletes Recently the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) issued an interim award in an arbitration procedure that went in favour of India’s precociously talented sprinter Dutee Chand who had not been allowed to compete last year under the IAAF’s hyperandrogenism regulations It was a landmark legal pronouncement for Chand and the 071 per cent international runners like her who had been denied a chance to compete in the last few years But where does that interim order leave the remainder of women athletes for the next two years if not longer How does athletics as a sport respond to this tightrope which determines the male-female sex divide necessary for competition to stay fair and meaningful Hyperandrogenism concerns female athletes who due to a special condition naturally have levels of testosterone that are usually seen in males The Cas heard exhaustive arguments from both sides The interim arbitral award has gone deep into the dilemmas that surround the issue before delivering an order that is just and fair to Chand: that she should be allowed to run But it would be unfair to forget about the addendum and adjuncts of the order On the biggest count that matters the sociological view the order delivers justice to Chand something that should be celebrated On scientific counts the order concludes that available studies are inconclusive “No study has established to an appropriate level of certainty a scientific basis to come to a definitive conclusion one way or the other” it notes Both sides relied on different published papers to support their respective views and competing evidence and hypotheses wrestled to arrive at a scientifically absolute conclusion They couldn’t Both sides agreed that “lean body mass” (LBM) is a discriminatory factor between males and females However the onus is now on the IAAF to prove that testosterone is responsible for generating this LBM The IAAF was also unable to demonstrate with scientific certainty that there is no difference between the effects of endogenous (naturally occurring) and exogenous (doping) testosterone on athletic performance It remains an unresolved issue that will no doubt be further explored by scientists who seek to establish a link between testosterone and LBM The science therefore is complex and confusing It will be particularly confounding to the majority of female athletes who do not come under the hyperandrogenism ambit While there is no answer to Chand’s contention that it was unfair to bar her from running because the testosterone levels in her body were naturally occurring and no fault of her’s — hence also a god-given advantage — the corollary also rings true: The field now turns unfair for athletes who for no fault of theirs are at a disadvantage because they are not blessed with high levels of naturally occurring testosterone The debate is complex because for at least half a century now some female athletes have doped on illegal testosterone making it the dirty byword of performance enhancement in athletics and a source of great frustration for those affected The anti-doping body’s list of prohibited substances also bans administration of substances that promote production and release of endogenous hormones (including testosterone) To now be told that testosterone is irrelevant to the debate will be a staggering departure It will mean understanding the layered science which itself is grappling with conflicting viewpoints To remain in absolute denial of testosterone’s contribution to athletic performance wouldn’t be particularly helpful either Though hyperandrogenism regulations are grossly discriminatory has it been satisfactorily resolved if the women’s athletics field has now achieved complete fairness It is not just that the majority’s recourse for absolute parity (in testosterone levels) can only be doping It is also the challenge of dealing with the perception that a competitor enjoys a testosterone advantage especially when science is not providing the answers The non-resolution of the hyperandrogenism issue in the long term will subtly chip away at the sense of a level playing field in athletics Cynicism about an unfair advantage is extremely harmful to any competition Chand’s representatives have contended that a level playing field is illusory But if Chand deserves fairness so do the women running in lanes parallel to her [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by PTI | Jammu |

blame for Arsenal’s Champions League crisis after his selection gamble backfired in a humiliating 3-2 defeat against Olympiakos Wenger’s side had never before lost their opening two Champions League games but they have imploded twice against Dinamo Zagreb and now Olympiakos to leave their Group F campaign in turmoil And it is Wenger’s curious decision to make a host of changes for both European fixtures that has played a major role in the defeats which leave Arsenal in danger of failing to qualify for the knockout stages for the first time in 16 years Arsene Wenger manager of Arsenal looks dejected with assistant Steve Bould during the UEFA Champions League Group F match between Arsenal and Olympiacos Getty After making six changes for the loss in Zagreb earlier this month Wenger threw caution to the wind again and made another five alterations for Olympiakos’s visit to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday Crucially he opted to leave Petr Cech on the bench and select David Ospina in goal instead and the move went spectacularly wrong as the Colombian’s horrendous howler gifted the Greek club their second goal Yet Wenger remained defiant when asked if he regretted his failure to send out his strongest team "I make the decisions I pick the team and I’m responsible for it" Wenger said "I know many things that maybe you don’t know and you ignore "You can’t select the team by making a poll before the game" Pressed on why he had decided he could do without the experience of former Chelsea star Cech an increasingly tetchy Wenger refused to accept he had blundered "I don’t give you why I don’t have to sit here and give you explanations about every decision I make" he said "Cech had a slight (injury) alert before the Leicester game and I didn’t want to take a gamble "It’s not because of that we lost the game "Ospina payed 19 games and kept many clean-sheets Last week at Tottenham he had a fantastic game "It (the mistake) could have happened to Cech as well" – Shambolic – With back to back fixtures against group leaders Bayern Munich coming next Wenger’s team could be eliminated by early November But the Gunners boss is convinced they can still nick a win against the Germans and find a way to sneak through "It leaves us in a bad positon but we are still in it" Wenger said "We have to think we can deal with Zagreb and Olympiakos and we have to make a result in our next game against Bayern at home We are not out of it" Felipe Pardo opened the scoring before Theo Walcott equalised Then Ospina’s own goal was followed by an Alexis Sanchez equaliser and just 59 seconds later substitute Alfred Finnbogason bagged the winner Even by Arsenal’s sloppy defensive standards this was a new low for Wenger’s men but he was adamant it wasn’t the worse European result of his reign "No If you sit on the bench and lose in the Champions League final you will have the answer" he said "I believe some aspects of our game were quite good but we lacked quality in our defensive concentration "We had a bit of bad luck as well They had four shots on targets and scored three goals That happens once in 100 games in the Champions League "We had 65 percent possession but we feel guilty because we gave easy goals away" While Wenger cut a frustrated figure Olympiakos boss Marco Silva was understandably revelling in his club’s first ever win in England after 12 consecutive defeats "I can’t hide that I’m very satisfied It’s something historical for us after all these games and all these losses" he said "Any team that wins here has to know how to suffer and put up with the pressure That is one of the key features "We had to resist and to run a lot when Arsenal are trying to tire you "It was important never to be scared and we never stopped believing we

Payet’s return home Analysis by consultants Deloitte showed the clubs in English football’s top flight splashed out an estimated 215 million pounds ($27109 million) in the transfer window that closed on Tuesday but brought in 40 million pounds more than they paid out That took the clubs’ total spending for 2016/17 to almost 14 billion pounds breaking last season’s record of a combined one billion
