Busted. Or, rather, debusted. Zimbabwean athlete Samkeliso Sithole (careful) has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for impersonating a woman. The medal-winning runner, jumper, and shot-putter had been entering women’s track events for over three years. He was convicted in part on charges of offending the dignity of a woman athlete who undressed in front of him, unaware he was a man. Sithole (careful) claimed he had both male and female genitals and lived as a woman, but an examination proved he was, in fact, male. (Reuters)
