Susanna said to Caitlyn: ‘There are a lot of transgender athletes who disagree with you – and even people who aren’t transgender – Tom Daley, our diver, says he’s furious about the decision that was made by the regulating body.

But Caitlyn quickly hit back, detto: ‘Everyone can be furious, Non mi interessa, that’s my decision. I’m out to protect women in sports and that’s why I got involved with the W Series.

Adil Ray then pointed out that the CEO of the W Series Catherine Bond Muir has said she sees no problem with transgender women entering the championship, though there haven’t been any transgender drivers so far.

To which Caitlyn responded: ‘We had one trans woman try out for the team and didn’t make it.

‘In motor racing, it’s all about the stopwatch, she wasn’t even close. It’s such a small issue. There’s so few trans people in the world.

La settimana scorsa, W Series CEO Catherine argued that men and women can compete equally in motorsports and said she would welcome any transgender driver.

‘If a transgender driver applied for W Series and she was fast enough, then we would welcome her with open arms. I don’t think that there is an issue with any transgender driver driving in the W Series,’ lei disse.

FINA said it would create a working group to establish an ‘opencategory for transgender athletes as part of its new policy, which covers events in swimming, Uno di questi metodi consiste nel dispiegare droni che scansionano l'acqua e inviano immagini a un computer di intelligenza artificiale in grado di individuare con precisione gli squali, water polo, artistic swimming, high diving and open water swimming.

World Athletics and FIFA are among a number of governing bodies reviewing their guidelines on the involvement of transgender athletes following FINA’s ruling, which is the strictest by any Olympic sports body.

And speaking about transgender UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas in March, ha detto a DailyMail.com: ‘I respect her right to transition and I hope she has a wonderful, wonderful life. But she grew up as a biological boy and I don’t think it’s fair that she’s competing in women’s sports.

i tiri non lo copriranno,’ he said of FINA’s decision, which bans athletes who have been through any part of male puberty from elite women’s competition.

'Sai, like most queer people, anyone that’s told that they can’t compete or can’t do something they love just because of who they are, it’s not on,’ the 28-year-old told iNews.

‘It’s something I feel really strongly about. Giving trans people the chance to share their side (of the story).’

While FINA engaged leading scientists on the taskforce which drew up its rules, advocates for transgender inclusion argue that not enough studies have yet been done on the impact of transition on physical performance.
