Default Controversial Sports Story Help

Hi guys, helping my wife (an inner city teacher in the US) write a lesson plan on perspectives. She wants a hugely polarizing sports story and then I need to find one article that defends it and one that condemns it. I'd love to do the Hand of God but might have to settle for Spy Gate with the Patriots. Any other suggestions or links?

There's this cyclist dude who won lots of races AFTER surviving cancer of the brain.

Big in LA.

No one defends him these days. We need an article from both sides. One condoning and one condemning.

Caster Semenya. There's been reams of paper attributed to that story over the past few years, you'll surely find what you're looking for in that story.

That could be the one. I need 1 article in favor and 1 article against her being allowed to participate. Will start looking now.

Inner city US school I'd imagine Kaepernick would grab the attention, someone the students would recognise
