Rachel McKinnon 2018 cycling victory

McKinnon’s cycling victory in 2018 was controversial as some in the sports world thought his birth gender gave him an unfair advantage. The American American Jennifer Wagner, who finished in third place (bronze), complained that the race was unfair because the birth of McKinnon gave her physiological benefits. The winner of the silver medal, Dutch athlete Caroline van Herrikhuyzen, supported McKinnon. McKinnon argued that there was no evidence that it would be an advantage for her to be born a man and said he had lost to Wagner in the past. British columnist Katie Hopkins wrote: “For the sake of clarity, that was the WOMEN’S World Cup, I repeat, women, congratulations to the brave faces of silver and bronze, the world is full of febrile madness.” Tennis player Martina Navrátilová said it was “insane” and “fraudulent” to allow men to participate in women’s sports. McKinnon criticized Navrátilová’s comments as “transphobic.”

McKinnon said he received more than 100,000 hate comments on Twitter. He cited one of the principles of the International Olympic Committee, according to which the practice of sport is a human right. Their participation in the competition was consistent with the rules in force since 2003. Some commenters felt that McKinnon had an advantage over their peers due to their size and muscle mass. McKinnon opposed this criticism: he needed to keep his testosterone levels low as a condition for his participation in sports competitions. The thresholds for transgender women are lower than for athletes.
