The International Olympic Committee has cleared a transgender athlete to compete in the upcoming Tokyo games.
The IOC ruled Saturday that Laurel Hubbard, 43, who is a biological man, can compete for New Zealand in the women’s weightlifting super-heavyweight category and that her inclusion does not violate the current rules on the books.
She is on track to be the first transgender athlete to ever compete in the games.
“The rules for qualification have been established by the International Weightlifting Federation before the qualifications started,” IOC boss Thomas Bach said during a new conference Reuters reported. “These rules apply, and you cannot change rules during ongoing competitions.”
Bach stressed that the rules were currently under evaluation and would be reviewed at a later date.
Transgender athletes have been officially allowed to compete in the Olympic games as women since 2015.

Don’t watch. Ignore.
There’s no Olympics.
Maybe all the female weightlifters, should just up and walk out in protest, and tell the powers that be, to stick it up somewhere sideways. I wonder if that would get their attention? Those slime bags are such slime bags,they probably couldn’t even care less.
Where’s Jeff Gillooly when you need him?
I like that idea.
We live in Clown World run by clowns.
I’m old enough to remember when they tested the Soviet bloc athletes to make sure they were really women.
The Olympic's decision is patently unfair to all real women.
The East Germans too
Bizarro World, yes
No fans, no viewers.
Dude, hold ma beer...
This is a sick joke.
What makes him eligible to compete as a women? Because he changed his name, put his hair up in a man bun and claims he's a woman?
This will all stop someday but in the meantime, girls and women at every level of sports are getting a raw deal from the Marxist, liberal Left by allowing this.
Don’t shed any tears for the liberal feminist women. They helped lay the PC foundation upon which this latest atrocity is built.

Whacko ........I am pretty close to not watching any of the Tokyo Olympics on TV, even though in Japan, one of my favorite countries.
That would be a good start. With a man competing in womens sports, what is the worth of an Olympic medal these days? Let him win all three.
Or to those women and kids who have to share showers and toilets with perverts.
Not everyone voted for this baloney.
Jusy one question. What does not having a penis have to do with gender?. If a man cuts off his penis, he’s not a woman, he just a man without a penis.
I was kind of thinking the same. The azz hole could win all three.
That’s probably the gist of it, right there.
