image for Olympic Committee seeks advice from Simon Cowell
'Excuse me Madam, should you be in this race?'

The Worldwide Athletics Group (W.A.G), have confirmed that Caster Semenya can resume her athletics career for the time being.

The 800mtrs World Champion was said to be delighted that her training could now get 'back on track', and that she'd been 'waiting almost 10 months to use that one-liner'.

The 19 year old, who suffered suspension from the athletics circuit due to doubts about her gender, said that the focus of her training programme would now be London, in 2012.

However, the W.A.G has issued proposals which may only seek to re-open this controversial topic. They have suggested that 2012 should have three categories for each event. They have proposed mens, ladies and 'others'.

This has sparked fresh controversy as to how and on what basis athletes and competitors will be categorised.

I can reveal that Simon Cowell has been involved in early discussions with the W.A.G and other olympic representatives and is known to favour a 'public vote' option. 'I favour the public vote option', said Cowell earlier today.

'The public can vote by 'phone as to what category they think most appropriate and their decision would be final.In my opinion it would make for far more interesting competition', he concluded.

Certain members of the committee are known to agree with Cowell and there is no disputing that the extra revenues generated from the global telephone voting would be a useful addition to funds.

In the meantime, some contenders are starting to look a little nervous!
