Olympics, 2 August: unmissable Laurel Hubbard, first trans athlete in the competition!
Born Gavin, since becoming a self-declared woman Hubbard has made a killing in women's weightlifting. But she is not seen as the favourite: perhaps even for the IOC a gold would be embarrassing to handle in front of the world.
There are great expectations on Monday 2 August, 12.50 pm Italian time, for the women's weightlifting competition in which New Zealand athlete Laurel Hubbard, celebrated by the media as "the first transgender athlete at the Olympics", will take part. Laurel, weighing 131 kg, will compete in the heaviest female category, +87 kg, in Group A.

The sportswomen -including Cristina Sanulli and Denise Neumann, beaten by the trans Valentina Petrillo- claim to be deprived of fair competitions, in violation of the Equal Opportunities Code. And they write to Minister Bonetti and Undersecretary Vezzali. No answer so far.
As the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games approached in July, the media began showing footage of women's competitions in which male-born athletes also participate - and almost always win - thanks to the guidelines drawn up by an all-male group of the International Olympic Committee, which stipulate self-identification with 'female gender identity' and lowered testosterone levels as the only criteria. The images of these tall, muscular bodies, with a frame that despite the [...]

Tokyo Olympics: men's bodies in women's sports. The first is Laurel Hubbard
A mediocre athlete in men's weightlifting, Hubbard obviously wins in the women's category. Protests grow, but four more T athletes prepare for Tokyo
Following the cancellation of the final qualifying events for the Tokyo Olympics, the sports pages are reporting that Laurel Hubbard (New Zealand) could become the first transgender athlete to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. Hubbard, son of industrialist and current mayor of Auckland Dick Hubbard, until the age of 34 practised weightlifting with mediocre results in the men's category as Gavin Hubbard, in 2013 undertook a "gender transition" and was admitted in the women's category of the [...]
