An Australian running champion has beaten transsexual athletes who participate in women's events because they have & # 39; far too much benefit & # 39; to have.
Athletics champion Tamsyn Manou, who won three gold medals at the Commonwealth Games, said she believes the practice is over.
Her comments come after American collegue athlete Cece Telfer sprinted to victory last Saturday at the national championships at 400-meter hurdles.
Mrs. Telfer grew up as Craig and underwent sex-fitting operations in the last year.
But Mrs. Manou told me Ben Fordham she finds the title unfair and falls in a & # 39; gray area & # 39 ;.
She said that the female category in elite sports is currently fragile and not protected enough to guarantee fair and even competition.
Athletics champion and three-time gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games, Tamsyn Manou, said they practice with regard to
& # 39; I think it's important for people to understand that it's not about gender identity. This is a problem that surrounds where you were born, biologically what your gender is.
& # 39; There is just way too much benefit with a man competing against a woman. & # 39;
Sports star Jane Flemming also added to the conversation and said that the genetic make-up of a person born as a man wrongly favors them to someone born as a woman.
In particular, she said that men have increased blood oxygenation and significantly more bone strength.
Against the heat of 2019, Telfer managed to win gold with a full second, bringing her first gold medal winner at Franklin Pierce University in the event
In January 2011, Mrs Telfer fought for her school in the male division.
In the 2016-2017 season, still competing as Craig, Telfer was not even among the top 200 male athletes in her event.
By the heat of 2019, she managed to win gold with a full second, making her the first gold medal winner at Franklin Pierce University in the event.
The Transgender Handbook of the National Collegiate Athletic Association says there is no evidence that transgender women offer a competitive advantage.
& # 39; According to medical experts on this topic, the assumption that a transgender woman competing in a women's team would have a competitive advantage that is out of reach and competitive advantage or disadvantage that already exists in female athletes would not be supported by evidence & # 39 ;, it is said. .
Mrs Manou said that the female category in top sport is currently vulnerable and not protected enough to guarantee fair and even competition
