MANILA, Philippines – India’s Asian Games gold medal winner Pinki Pramanik has been charged with rape and cheating after medical reports confirmed she is actually a man.

Premanik won a gold medal in the women’s 4x400-meter relay at the 2006 Asian Games, but the athlete was arrested on June 14 following a rape complaint lodged by a woman who said she was the live-in partner of the athlete.

Authorities say a medical board had confirmed that Pramanik was male. -- Mornings @ ANC, November 14, 2012
