Transgender athletes are dominating women’s sports. In a girls’ 55-meter sprint for Bloomfield Highscool, the top two spots were taken by transgender competitors.
The second place winner was Andraya Yearwood. Yearwood is a 17-year-old biological male who identifies as female.
The first place position was taken by Terry Miller, who is also a transgender student at the school.
For comparison the third place competitor was not transgender, she was .22 seconds behind Yearwood and .28 seconds behind Miller.
However Yearwood, who has admitted to having a strength advantage over fellow competitors, claims biological females can have many advantages themselves.
“One high jumper could be taller and have longer legs than another, but the other could have perfect form, and then do better,” Yearwood explained. “One sprinter could have parents who spend so much money on personal training for their child, which in turn, would cause that child to run faster.”
Yearwood seems to miss that a transgender student could also have such advantages.
It’s all part of the commentary as officials try to find a balance between inclusiveness and fair play.
