>Who Is Laurel Hubbard? Weightlifter and First Transgender Athlete To Compete at Olympics

>Laurel Hubbard is set to make history when she competes as the first openly transgender athlete at an Olympic Games.
>The New Zealander will take the stage on August 2 for the women's super heavyweight +87kg weightlifting event.

>Olympic advisor on trans athletes says history may judge it 'less than ideal' that transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard is allowed to compete at Tokyo 2020

>A top Olympics advisor on trans athletes says history may judge it 'less than ideal' that transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard is allowed to compete against women in Tokyo 2020.
>Respected researcher Dr Joanna Harper, herself a trans woman, says she has her doubts about the New Zealander's participation in the women's weightlifting competition.

>Hubbard, 43, who transitioned in 2012, is due to make history on Monday by becoming the first openly trans woman to compete in a solo event at an Olympic games.

>But Dr Harper, whose research fed into the International Olympic Committee's decision to allow trans women athletes to compete against women, has raised concerns about the participation of trans athletes in competitive weightlifting without some kind of mitigation.

>Speaking to Radio 4's Woman's Hour Dr Harper said: 'In most sports, it is probably true that hormone therapy mitigates the advantages, enough. Now, most sports do not necessarily include Olympic weightlifting.
>'And I would admit that of all the sports that I might be concerned with, Olympic weightlifting might be near the top of the list.'
>Asked if the IOC had 'made a mistake' in allowing Hubbard to compete in the women's category, Dr Harper replied: 'I don't believe so. I think that it is possible that history will say that this is a less than ideal decision, but I don't think it's a mistake.'

I wonder how all the women who fought for women's sports divisions would feel about this.
They'd probably be annoyed and angered, but they'd be dismissed as "TERFs".

How bad do you think this will get? Are we just going to keep seeing more and more trannies in winning all of the women's medals?
What even goes through their heads? Don't they feel uncomfortable with the fact that any achievements they get will be viewed through the lense of their trans status? Won't that make all of their victories feel empty? I wouldn't want to do it.

I hope someone with a bit of money and a sense of humor makes a 100% trans team in a sport and demolishes all the other teams. Then watch as the media will have to celebrate how progressive the team is because it is a trans team, and also celebrate how former men (but not actually women) dominates a women sport.

I think they believe they are real women, their therapists and woke society told them so. So I don't think they will understand why any achievements they get will be hollow ones.

Also BIG Quad Check

But doesn't look like He got far...

>Tokyo Olympics: Laurel Hubbard out of weightlifting after failing to register successful lift

>Transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard made Olympic history but failed to record a successful lift in the women's +87kg weightlifting.
>She became the first openly transgender athlete to compete at a Games in a different gender category to the one in which they were born.
>But after a failed attempt to lift 120kg and two failed efforts at 125kg in the snatch, her competition ended.

>Hubbard said: "I know that from a sporting perspective I haven't really hit the standards that I put upon myself and perhaps the standards that my country has expected of me.
>"But one of the things for which I am profoundly grateful is that the supporters in New Zealand have given me so much and have been beyond astonishing.
>"I'd like to thank the New Zealand Olympic Committee - they have supported me through what have been quite difficult times.
>"I know that my participation at these Games has not been entirely without controversy but they have been just so wonderful and I'm so grateful to them."

>What are the rules?
>In 2004, the IOC permitted transgender athletes to take part in the Olympics.
>Since 2015, its stipulations have stated athletes who have transitioned from male to female can compete in women's sport - without requiring surgery - as long as they have declared their gender identity is female for at least four years and kept their testosterone level below 10 nanomoles per litre for at least 12 months.

While that would be funny, it's unfortunately not going to happen. This is more of a political-type persecution than anything else, so it really doesn't matter if it's someone that's black or uses different pronouns, if they show the hint of being based they'll be sidelined, and anyone that speaks out against it will be gaslighted and said to be a conspiracy theorist.

>So I don't think they will understand why any achievements they get will be hollow ones.
Maybe not on a conscious level, but deep down everyone knows. Leftist propaganda can really only change someone's mind so much; when left to their own devices people will see that 2+2=4 eventually. It's just that the flow of it tends to be so powerful, to the people taking the brunt of it it's like trying to stand up against a firehose.

Hmmm, I guess it does take more than a male body to beat women at weight lifting.
