Do we need a "Trans" Olympics? Ever since I joined the IOC nearly 35 years ago, the Games have always been upheld as a place for fair and even competition amongst all of the different peoples and nations of the world.
We need a scientifically based methodology to determine how far the benefits of testosterone - and male growth from puberty - can be acceptable when trans athletes compete outside of their birth gender.
The ongoing Lia Thomas issue is less about trans/LGBT rights, and moreso about keeping sporting events, for both men and women, as fair and as even as we can get.
