A New Zealand transgender weightlifter has won two gold medals and a silver in women’s weightlifting at the Samoa 2019 Pacific Games.

Laurel Hubbard, 41, formerly known as Gavin Hubbard, scored first place in both the Women’s +89kg Snatch and the Women’s +89kg and second place in the Women’s +89kg Clean and Jerk.

In second place was Samoa’s 18-year-old weightlifter Feagaiga Stowers, who won her nation’s second gold medal last year after Hubbard was forced to withdraw due to an elbow injury.

Transgender athletes continue to make it near-impossible for biological women to succeed in their own sports.

“Eventually, it’s going to get to the point where the biological females will be on the sidelines, watching their own sports,” 16-year-old Selina Soule rightly said after she failed to qualify for a track event after being beaten by two biological males.

Men and women are inherently different, and women most of all will continue to pay an especially high price if we continue to pretend otherwise.
