It’s a consistent insistence from the trans lot about sports and all that that trans people have been able to compete at the Olympics but none have. Well, not outside the East German team at least. And so, well, nyah! Physical males should run against girls in high school therefore.
History and controversy is expected to be made at the Tokyo Olympics this summer after the transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard was effectively guaranteed a place in the women’s super heavyweight category.
While the 43-year-old has not yet been named in the New Zealand team, an International Weightlifting Federation insider confirmed to the Guardian that she would automatically qualify because of amended rules approved by the International Olympic Committee.
Presumably in the superheavyweight category for women as it’s difficult to find a bloke small enough for the women’s flyweight etc.
