Male Weightlifter Will Become First Transgender To Compete At The Olympics’ In A Woman’s Event

This is the beginning of the end for women’s sports.

A biological male weightlifter will become the first transgender athlete to compete in the Olympics as a woman.

Laurel Hubbard will be representing New Zealand in the women’s super heavyweight lifting event.

Hubbard is able to compete in the woman’s category after the IOC issued a new rule in 2015 that allows transgenders to compete as women.

Imagine training your whole life in an event just to be beaten by some man who couldn’t qualify for the Olympics as a male so he transitioned his gender to get glory as a “female”.

CNN covered the story, see what they had to say:

Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard is set to become the first transgender athlete to compete at an Olympics after qualifying for the rescheduled Tokyo Games due to a rule change, Inside the Games website reported on Wednesday.

Hubbard was effectively guaranteed a spot in the women’s super heavyweight category, the report from the Olympics-focused trade publication said, after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved an amendment to the rules as the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of many qualifying competitions.

New Zealander Hubbard, 43, has not yet been named to the national women’s weightlifting team going to the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Hubbard competed in men’s weightlifting competitions before transitioning in 2013.

She has been eligible to compete in the Olympics since 2015, when the IOC issued new guidelines allowing any transgender athlete to compete as a woman provided their testosterone levels are below 10 nanomoles per liter for at least 12 months before their first competition.

NBC News covered the unfair decision by the IOC too:

Weightlifting has been at the center of the debate over the fairness of transgender athletes competing in women’s sports, and Hubbard’s presence in Tokyo is set to attract huge media attention as well as criticism from fellow lifters and coaches.

As the woke left praises this transgender weightlifter as a hero the reality is they’re really celebrating the demise of woman athletics.

Hopefully, women who compete against Hubbard in the Olympic’s will speak out against the unfairness but we all know if they do their sponsorships will be taken away from them immediately.
