Female Powerlifter Required to Pass IOC Gender Test

August 9th, 2012 | by Nick

London, UK – A female powerlifter is making waves after alleging that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) forced her to pass a gender exam before allowing her to compete. Helga Anderssen of the Netherlands spoke out recently, after barely missing a bronze medal in the clean and jerk. She stated that a handful of husky female IOC associates bullied her into a dimly lit closet near Olympic headquarters and made her recite every Sex and the City character’s name to prove she was, in fact, a woman. Anderssen had this to say:

“Four bullish women wrangled me into a broom closet and said I couldn’t leave until I told them, in alphabetical order, who the 4 stars of Sex and the City were. It was a harrowing experience…one that I wouldn’t wish upon anybody. They simply wouldn’t believe I was a woman until I blurted out the names: Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, Samantha.”

It seems that the IOC is using very unconventional, yet effective tactics to ensure fairness in competition.
