This is very intersting and really shows the possible dangers to the female categories of women sports. This is not a political video, but one based on the actual evidence surrounding this case. Its quite possible that the 2016 women's 800meters Olympics had gold, silver and bronze, won by biological males. As all 3 atheletes could possible have 46 XY DSD. That means their bodies basically developed as males through high levels of testosterone. It also highlights some of the problems with Trans women sports. 

Will include some links below. Its really worth the watch.
