The Dutch sprinter Foekje Dillema was expelled from the 1950 national team after she refused a mandatory sex test in July 1950; later investigations revealed a Y-chromosome in her body cells, and the analysis showed that she probably was a 46,XX/46,XY mosaic female.[14]

Just curious, but DNA wasn't discovered until 1953 - SO HOW IN THE FLYING FUCK DID THEY EXAMINE HER CHROMOSOMES AND DETERMINE HER TO BE A MOSAIC FEMALE, A CONCEPT THAT COULDN'T POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN KNOW ABOUT IN 1950 - ALONG WITH CHROMOSOMES?

Sounds like a transfag edited the Wikipedia page with fanfic.

Foekje Dillema (18 September 1926 – 5 December 2007)

Who knows. maybe there was a interest in her DNA later in life, and DNA is pretty stable inside the duration of one life, barring events like a space station researcher, etc.

God forbid someone like that would live to a ripe old age when genetic analysis could happen.
