Biologically Male Runner Invited to Compete as Female in US Olympic Trials
Biological male trans athlete Megan Youngren was invited to compete in the US Olympic trials this year.
Youngren will make history as the first openly trans athlete to compete with female athletes in a US Olympic trial.
Megan Youngren credits her invitation with hard work.
It’s funny how this only seems to work for men to women transgenders for some odd reason?
The Daily Caller reported:
A biologically male marathon runner who identifies as a transgender woman is set to compete in the USA Olympic trials later in February.
Megan Youngren “is set to make history on Feb. 29 as the first openly transgender athlete to compete at the U.S. Olympic marathon trials,” Sports Illustrated reported. Youngren qualified for the trials after a strong performance on Dec. 8, 2019 in the California International Marathon.
“People will try to put it down by saying, ‘That’s too easy because you’re trans.’ But what about the 500 other women who will qualify?” Youngren told the magazine. “There’s probably someone with the exact same story.”
“I trained hard. I got lucky. I dodged injuries,” Youngren added. “I raced a lot, and it worked out for me. That’s the story for a lot of other people, too.”
