Can't comment on that without knowing how androgens are affecting her, which I don't.
I don't see that the 99% have a greater claim to fairness than the 1%. Semenya has worked in good faith under the rules as the IAAF wrote them--an immediate rule change which looks for all the world designed to exclude her and no one else currently competing is not something I would regard as coddling.
