Abstract

This editorial by Franklin, Ospina Betancurt and Camporesi addresses the 2017/18 debate on the role of testosterone in athletic performance. The authors outline what they contend are statistical flaws in the evidence filed by IAAF to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the discussion about the role of hyperandrogenism in women and improved performance in track & field. The reader is directed to the relevant context in the boxed item for the background of this discussion, and to the companion piece in BJSM by Camporesi 2018 for a discussion of the ethical issues of the same case.
