A man who "identifies" as a woman has made the switch over to women's weightlifting and is dominating the field.
Shocking, I know.
Laurel Hubbard, a transgender "woman" from Kiwi, took a commanding win in Sunday's Australian International event in Melbourne. The athlete wrecked the biological women during Sunday's showdown, setting four national records. "Hubbard lifted a combined total of 268kg - 19kg better than silver medallist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa," notes NZ Herald.
The 39-year-old weightlifting champ previously competed in men's national weightlifting before his "transition" during his mid-30s.
While LGBT activists are praising Hubbard for his participation and dominance in the field, some of the weightlifter's biologically female competitors are less than thrilled with the situation.
