Doping and control of womanliness in sport

Viviane Teixeira Silveira Alexandre Fernandez Vaz About the authors

This paper reflects about relations between doping and sexuality by women athletes. Taking in account the Gender Politic Analysis in Sport and the case of the runner Caster Semenya, the paper put in question doping and genders discourses, in sense of suggesting that that relation supposes an inquietude with sexual and gender identities
