nMen and women will forever have to compete separately in sport because better female performance due to training will never eradicate the biological supremacy of the male athlete, the Association was also told.

A scientist who has studied the gender differences in sporting performance dismissed suggestions made three years ago that women athletes could soon compete on equal terms with men.

Running, jumping, throwing, swimming and kicking all rely on muscular power and the efficient transport of oxygen around the body. Men, who have a higher proportion of muscle to fat, bigger hearts and richer blood, will always be able to out perform women, said Kirk Cureton of the University of Georgia.
