Sportscheat of the year

Man named sportswoman of the year.

New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has been named sportswoman of the year by the University of Otago. 

So insulting. They’re rubbing our noses in it.

She is the first transgender winner of the award in its 113 year history celebrating sporting greatness. 

He is the first man to win the award for women.

Ms Hubbard competed at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year in the 87+ kg womens’ weightlifting. 

Mr Hubbard.

Ms Hubbard, who transitioned in 2012, qualified for the Olympic Games after the International Olympic Committee changed their rules to allow women to compete if their testosterone levels are below a certain threshold. 

Mr Hubbard qualified for the Olympic Games after the International Olympic Committee changed their rules to allow men to compete if their testosterone levels are below a certain threshold. Which is ridiculous, and profoundly unfair to woman, because men retain a slew of physical advantages even if they lower their testosterone levels.

She released a statement after qualifying for the Games through the IOC thanking them for their inclusivity.    

‘I see the Olympic Games as a global celebration of our hopes, ideals and values and I would like to thank the IOC for its commitment to making sport inclusive and accessible,’ she said.

The IOC didn’t make sport inclusive and accessible, it made sport less inclusive and accessible to women, at the behest of one selfish entitled pig of a man.
