Did the transgender weightlifter win an Olympic medal?
Does the Olympics allow transgender athletes? Athletes who transitioned from female to male were allowed to compete without restriction. These guidelines were in effect for the 2016 Rio Olympics, although no openly transgender athletes competed. In 2021, the IOC approved Laurel Hubbard, a trans woman, to compete in the 2020 Summer Olympics in weightlifting.
Can transgender men get pregnant? Transgender men can become pregnant through sexual intercourse with biological men, even during hormone replacement therapy, so correct contraception is necessary to avoid unwanted pregnancies. Transgender sex education is important to increase awareness of this issue among individuals and medical professionals.
Is testosterone allowed in the Olympics? Athletes are allowed to compete in the restricted events with medical suppression of testosterone (by contraceptive injections or pills, or physical castration), although in practice many have chosen to switch to unaffected events, most notably the 200m.
