The INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE has added a new sport to its games. It's called Sports for Athletes Who Are Hermaphrodites or just The Hermaphrodite Games.

Steroids, of course, are still forbidden, but the International Olympic Committee decided that it was not fair for athletes to compete who have the misfortune (or fortune?) of possessing both male and female genitals.
Athletes must undergo rigorous examinations to determine whether they qualify to compete in the Hermaphrodite Games.

And even if athletes have both male and female genitals, the key qualification will be the amount of testosterone that he (or she) has.

Too much testosterone, and the athlete cannot compete as an hermaphrodite, but must then compete as a man.

Likewise, too little testosterone, and the athlete must compete as a woman.

The IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) has agreed to follow the same rules as the IOC.
