Testosterone! Is it a male prerogative? Find out more on Talking Turkey with Kanthi

In a bizarre announcement, the International Athletic Federation had laid down a diktat that female athletes who produce a naturally high level of testosterone cannot compete in the women’s category. Apart from sending the entire sports fraternity into a tizzy, this rule has also left the United Nations highly baffled. These women would have to undergo surgery or hormone replacement therapy to become eligible to participate in a women’s category.

On the show aired on 29 March 2019, Talking Turkey with Kanthi dealt with this grappling issue that has come to haunt certain women athletes. India’s Duttee Chand is also a victim of this draconian rule. Kanthi D Suresh, the host of the show is completely taken aback by the contradictory stand of the Indian Athletic Federation, as it seems to be very happy with this new rule.

For the erudite Kanthi D Suresh, Editor-in-chief of Power Sportz, it is a gross human rights violation. Find out what else she digs into on her show “Talking Turkey with Kanthi”.
