Athlete declared male after rape claim

By Sapa-AP | Nov 14, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 4 ]

Indian authorities investigating a rape case say a sprinter who won a women's relay gold medal at the 2006 Asian Games is actually a man.

Police charged Pinki Pramanik on Monday with raping and assaulting a woman she was living with in the eastern state of West Bengal. The woman alleged Pramanik was a man who had reneged on a promise to marry her.

Indian authorities say an eight-member medical board submitted a gender test along with the charge sheet that concluded Pramanik was genetically male.

Another Indian medalist at the 2006 Asian Games, Santhi Soundarajan, was stripped of the women's 800 meters silver medal after failing a gender test shortly after the games.
