Below you will find the results for the 2021 Memorial Borisa Hanžekovića – the World Athletics Continental Tour gold track and field / athletics meeting that was held in Zagbreb, Croatia today (the men’s shot put was yesterday). The most newsworthy performance in the meet came in the women’s 2000 where Francine Niyonsaba, who is banned from running in women’s events between 400m and the mile as she is intersex , ran 5:21.56 to destroy Sonia O’Sullivan‘s outdoor world record of 5:25.36 which had stood since 1994.

World Athletics, formerly the International Association of Athletics Federations, or I.A.A.F., track and field’s world governing body, did not catch Negesa using performance-enhancing drugs. Rather, she is an intersex athlete. She identifies as female and was born with external female genitalia but also with Negesa’s medical record from the Women’s Hospital International & Fertility Centre in Kampala was reviewed by The New York Times and confirmed that World Athletics, then known as the I.A.A.F., recommended a thorough medical examination, citing the high levels of testosterone in her body.

Burundian runner Francine Niyonsaba, who has an intersex condition, broke a world record.

The 28-year-old set a new 2,000m record at a Continental Tour Gold meeting in Zagreb, Croatia, breaking the previous record by more than two seconds. Niyonsaba finished with a time of 5:21.26, surpassing Genzebe Dibaba's 2017 record.

Niyonsaba, a 2016 Rio Olympic Games silver medalist in the 800m, is one of the athletes banned by World Athletics from competing in women's races from 400m to one mile in distance because of what they consider to be her body's elevated levels of naturally occurring testosterone, her sensitivity to the hormone, and her unwillingness to submit to medical interventions to alter those characteristics.

Niyonsaba has hyperandrogenism, a condition characterized by the natural production of more testosterone than women without the condition.

In order to compete, those athletes must lower their testosterone levels with medication or surgery, which World Athletics says is intended to "ensure fair competition."

In 2019, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld World Athletics' DSD rules when they were challenged by South African runner Caster Semenya.

RELATED: Runner faster than all but two Canadian cyclists in Everest challenge. For a run to count as an official Everesting attempt, runners must follow a few simple rules. Firstly, the run has to be on one hill, meaning an individual can’t run around a hilly region on multiple routes until he or she hits “I was not sure I would get the world record until the last two laps,” he said. “I was worried that I would fall on the downhill.” Running down a steep hill (the one Grimstrup chose was 130m long and featured 44m of elevation gain) is difficult enough on tired legs, but the task was made tougher for Grimstrup due to rain.

"It doesn't make sense. For sure, I didn't choose to be born like this. I love running, and I will not stop running."

Niyonsaba has had an excellent 2021 so far, winning the 5,000m Wanda Diamond League title, as well as finishing fifth in the 10,000m at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

And in the 2,000m event -- a distance not run at the Olympics or the World Championships -- in Zagreb, continued her excellent form, dominating the race.

Finishing four seconds ahead of second-placed Freweyni Hailu with a final lap of 63 seconds, Niyonsaba became the new world record holder in the distance.

"I am feeling seriously wonderful. I didn't realise I could run a world record, but it was my first time here. I came here to do what I have to do," she said afterwards.

"I did it. It's wonderful and it's fabulous. The pacing was really perfect. I want to thank all the people who came to cheer us."
