Here is yet another element to transgenderism’s struggle with sports. A transgender wrestler has won the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound (49kg) division for the second year in a row. Mack Beggs, an 18 year old senior from Euless Trinity High School in Texas, is in the process of transitioning from female to male and taking a low-dose of testosterone. Last year two competitors forfeited the match in fear of injury. This year only one wrestler forfeited.
End of Mack Beggs title match was chaos. Had huge lead, nearly got pinned, then came the crescendo of cheers/boos. pic.twitter.com/FrLixVsTAj

Beggs has been criticised for having an unfair advantage by taking steroid therapy treatment while wrestling girls. Beggs apparently asked to wrestle in the boys’ division, but the rules for Texas public high schools require athletes to compete under the gender on their birth certificate.
