This year, the Olympics will feature transgender athletes for the first time. But would these professional athletes be making it to such high-level competitions if they had to compete against their biological sex, with its distinct biological advantages?

As transgenderism has risen, the Olympics have tried to open the games to these athletes. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) came out with a set of rules in 2003 that would allow a transgender athletes to compete if they had legally changed their sex with the proper entities, had “Surgical anatomical changes… including external genitalia changes and gonadectomy” and undergone “hormone therapy appropriate for the assigned sex… for a sufficient length of time to minimise gender-related advantages in sport competitions.”
