Park Eun-Sun had just recently come out of retirement. From Reuters-
China coach Shang Ruihua is questioning the eligibility of South Korean player Park Eun-Sun for the upcoming women’s Asian Cup and has urged authorities to conduct a gender test, local media reported.
“If Park is participating in the Asian Cup we will definitely appeal to the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) to test her gender,” Shang told Chengdu Business Daily, a paper from the host city of the May 19-30 tournament in southwest China.
Park has been selected for the South Korea training squad after a five-year retirement. The 1.80m (5 ft 11) striker scored 13 goals in 11 international matches she played for South Korea before retiring in 2005 at 19.
However, her power and voice have raised doubts in some players and coaches.
“Her voice is too deep,” said Chinese player Li Jie.
My voice is too deep to be mistaken for a woman’s.
Hat tip- NC47 at ROK Drop who writes- “I donâ€™t know if China should be asking for any type of qualification tests on athletes considering their history of cheating at sports.” Cheating is cheating, and should be reported by whoever observes it.
