Love blossoms as Lynsey Sharp and Andrew Butchart launch Scots’ team tartan
The victory was the 30th consecutive for double Olympic champion Semenya at the distance but the last before new International Association of Athletics Federations IAAF rules affecting the South African and other women with high natural levels of testosterone come into effect. Sharp, the European m champion, said it has been a difficult time for her and other runners dealing with the situation.

Briton Lynsey Sharp was left in disbelief as she went out of the women’s m on the opening day of the World Athletics Championships. Sharp, ranked fourth in the world of those competing in Doha, ran out of steam in the home straight as she finished fourth in her heat. The year-old Scot’s time of two minutes Semenya is not competing in Doha after governing body the IAAF introduced a rule that athletes with differences of sexual development DSD must either take testosterone-reducing medication in order to compete in track events from m to the mile or change to another distance.
Despite being among the pack in the home straight, Sharp failed to find the burst of speed needed to finish in a top-three spot, which would have earned automatic qualification. World indoor bronze medallist Oskan-Clarke produced a brilliant sprint to take second in her heat while fellow Briton Bell, fifth at the Commonwealth Games, battled her way to third. Christian Coleman underlined his status as favourite for the men’s m as he cruised to victory in his heat in 9.
The year-old American is competing in Doha after the US Anti-Doping Agency charged him with missing drugs three tests in 12 months before withdrawing the claim. A technicality regarding the date of one of the tests resulted in the London silver medallist being free to compete. All three Britons progressed to the semi-finals with European champion Zharnel Hughes, 24, the most impressive as he recovered from a poor start to win his heat in Hughes, who represented Anguilla as a youth, spoke about the air-conditioning inside the stadium as he told BBC Sport: “It’s different coming from the heat to the cool inside here but I’m happy, I got through easily.
I won’t let it hamper me. Adam Gemili, 25, has been hampered by a hamstring problem in recent seasons but finished third in his heat in British champion Ojie Edoburun squeezed into Saturday’s semi-finals as a fastest loser having run

Both my parents were international athletes so from a young age I spent a lot of time around athletics tracks. I wanted to get stuck in as soon as I was old enough to do so! Which event do you compete in and what does your training involve? My event is the metres. Typically, I compete between May and September each year.
I compete at international meetings such as the Diamond League, European Championships, Commonwealth Games and, of course, the Olympics. I train 6 days a week, twice a day. This usually involves a mix of running exercises across different terrains at varying intensities. I also do at least 3 gym sessions a week and throw in some bike sessions for good measure. I live a very simple lifestyle and it is difficult to have much of a social life or to make spontaneous plans.

The pair will clash again on track in Heat 2 of the m semi-finals at 7. Semenya is favourite to add a second two-lap world title to the Olympic gold she won last summer, a race in which Sharp finished sixth despite running a personal best time. As a result, Semenya, who suffers from hyperandrogenism that gives her elevated testosterone levels, was allowed to race freely and promptly sealed her first Olympic title. The year-old Scot found herself on the end of a flurry of abuse on Twitter which re-surfaced when the BBC aired her comments again on Monday ahead of Semenya’s m final.
Another user, simply going by Melvin, added: “Lynsey Sharp and co were trash for their reactions towards Semenya last year. And some directed their anger at pundit Paula Radcliffe, who has in the past claimed the sport would be devalued if Semenya were allowed to race. It was literally transphobia. Sharp was unable to contain her exasperation in an emotional post-race interview. We know how each other feels.

Given the tumultuous nature of last year, a month Olympic delay and potential entire missed season strangely do not seem that out of kilter with the way things have gone recently for Lynsey Sharp. Off the track, she made the snap decision – so quick that she had none of her belongings – to return to Britain from her San Diego home, got engaged to fellow British runner Andrew Butchart and underwent surgery to remove pre-cancerous cells after a smear test raised concerns.
On it, she was left devastated after unexpectedly crashing out of the World Championship heats when convinced she could, and probably should, have won a medal. Yet, as so often in recent years, it was a subject that only indirectly affects her for which she made the most headlines. Sharp, 29, seems to be an exception. The issue dates back to the Rio Olympics when an emotional Sharp, having just run a personal-best time to finish sixth in the m final, was asked about the ongoing situation regarding the winner Caster Semenya and her fellow medallists, all of whom are DSD differences of sex development athletes.
Sharp, meanwhile, has faced death threats, with those words from taking on a life of their own. Half the entire sports bulletin dedicated to a British runner failing to advance from the heats. It is no wonder she refuses to engage with such negativity. Nobody needs that amount of negativity about themselves in their life. It was a very balanced argument.

Lynsey Sharp has defended comments she made about rule changes concerning hyperandrogenic athletes following her defeat to Caster Semenya in the metre final at the Rio Olympics , saying they were “honest and diplomatic”. Semenya’s acceleration to dominating the event has been highly publicised after she was faced with intense public scrutiny over her hyperandrogenism, a condition in which some women have higher levels of androgens including testosterone in their bodies.
A ruling by the International Association of Athletics Federation that athletes with the condition must take measures to reduce their testosterone levels was overturned last year.
