Transgender Cyclist Celebrates World Championship in Women’s Event, Attacks Critics

On Sunday, two women competing in the women’s sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles wound up finishing second and third, losing to a biologically male Canadian professor who identifies as a woman.

As The Daily Caller reported, McKinnon finished ahead of Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and American cyclist Jennifer Wagner to take home the gold. Last January, USA Today quoted McKinnon railing against any requirement that would force men to suppress their testosterone in order to enter women’s events. McKinnon stated, “We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports. Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.” . . .
