FINALLY! World Athletics Votes to Ban Transgender Women (Biological Men) From Competing Against Females in International Athletic Events

By Amber Crawford

On Thursday, World Athletics voted to ban transgender women from competing against other females in international athletic events. The organization made this decision in order to “prioritize fairness and the integrity of the female competition before inclusion.”

Seb Coe, the President of the International Association of Athletics Federations, spoke at a press conference about this ruling, saying, “The World Athletics council has taken the decisive action to protect the female category in our sport.”

“The council has agreed to exclude male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty from female world ranking competitions from March 31 this year,” Ceo said. “The decision that the council made is a primarily principle-based decision that is the overarching need to protect the female category. This is what our sport is here to do.”

“The majority of those consulted stated that transgender athletes should not be competing in the female category,” Coe added. “Many believe there is insufficient evidence that transwomen do not retain advantage over biological women.”
