Summary:
Laurel Hubbard was born a male and was into weightlifting without much success. However, in her 30s she transitioned to being a woman and now at 41 is dominating women's weightlifting competitions. She just won 2 Golds and a Silver medal in her 3 events including beating out the strongest woman from the most recent Commonwealth games.


Has occurred recently in other sporting events where strength is a metric of performance.

Trans need their own division. The medals this male, by science, wins mean nothing.

**** it, I see it as almost punishment for stupidity and poor hindsight. Sorry not sorry but everyone saw this coming from miles away.

Agreed. Obvious outcome. Biologically a man, going to have the Male edge, even if putting on a dress.

In the end, the push for equality has ironically lead to less equality simply because male sports won’t be impacted by this, as guys are genetically and biologically stronger. The only ones that truly suffer are female sports.

I’m just curious to see what happens next, I already have my popcorn
