The Russian hammer thrower, Vera Musselova, just a gene away from being a man, took a fancy to Fatima Nockerova, the shaven headed blonde sensation, the Azerbaijani women’s snatch, clean and jerk weightlifting champion, with finely honed rippling pectoralis suspiciously close to masculine.
They became an item at the Baku Caucasian games, openly seen hand-in-hand, a muscle-bonded liaison of incongruous orientation and proportion.
Built like a Soviet T34 tank and wild yak, but not so hairy, their relationship never stood a chance; fraught from the start they just couldn’t agree who’d be he and who’d be she.

    Boys will be boys. In the arena of women’s weightlifting, clearly the snatch is not the only thing that differentiates them.

    Glad I’m down to my usual standard! 😉 But seriously, this is very well written. I love the ‘just a gene away’ reference.
