    Yes, and June Eastwood was predicted to be an NCAA title contender on that thread.

    The NCAA cancelled what was left of the 2020 outdoor season and Eastwood has since graduated, so there was no opportunity to leverage those 3:50/1500m and 14:38/5000m abilities into an NCAA women's title.

    I hope Hubbard competes and wins the gold medal. That would shut down the activists' argument of "but they're not winning anything at the Olympic level" and it would be a big international news story that wakes up the public to the consequences of letting born males compete as women. The pro-trans-in-women's-sports bandwagon will not lose momentum until and unless the public sees such consequences.
    A recent email I sent to friends:


    This will all come to a ridiculous end when a young Bruce Jenner switches teams as a teen and puts some women's record into the ozone, like a sub-10:10 hundred or a 3:55 mile or a 9,000 point hep . . .

    Of course, Jenner couldn't have done any damage in the 1980 Olympics because of the boycott.
    Not in the Olympics, but the hep world record would have been obliterated and be still standing today, at least 500 points above JJK.

    Jenner's probably thinking "wow, the damage I could have done to the pentathlon and heptathlon world records if I transitioned in 1977 and competed in 1978-1980."

    In the meantime...

    US appeals court to examine transgender sports ban

    A federal appeals court is to examine a law on Monday banning transgender athletes from competing in girls' and women's sports, an issue which has become highly politicized in the United States.

    The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in California will hear arguments in a case challenging a law passed last year in the western state of Idaho.

    While not being much of a fan of the Jenner for Gov movement, I appreciate the message & messenger. I believe this is what's called 'common sense' . . .



    Yeah even a clock is right once in awhile.

    Absolutely agree...allowing transgender women/girls to compete against biological women/girls is a sham...this is just about the only thing on which I agree with Jenner.

    That's the problem. She played by the rules, and went from #200 as a male to a national champion as a female. That shows the rule is flawed.
    I see your point and the logic is impeccable; I just can't bring myself to say 'no, you can't EVER compete as a female, no matter what you do.' That is not my head talking; it's my heart, and yeah, that's a problem in something where competitive fairness should rule. I'll stick to the NCAA rule, flawed as it is.
