Abstract

Th e aim of this paper is to present an issue that still creates a moral dilemma in determining
sex. It includes some anthropological diff erences of men and women, the problem of ensuring
fairness of competition and on the other side the right of preserving privacy, which is an
inalienable human right. Th e paper cites the meaning of a sex and gender identity and the
examples and consequences of not specifying the assessment and determination of the sex
and the opens the polemics about the eff ects of media pressure on unproven assumptions
regarding the sports results.
