Re: TUE secrets?

@TUE - "Not sure I understand why an [approved] exemption ... should remain secret.

Because medication can be deeply personal - imagine being Caster Semenya - having your very identity become the subject of international news for years, people accusing you of cheating for being simply you and then being forced to take medication to compete.

Regardless of how you think of sport, Semenya never asked to be a a flag bearer of gender issues or be the subject of reasoning like in this comment. Her medication is private.

Or perhaps women using contraceptive medication shouldn't have to tell the world (some countries might not be impressed)
