A male athlete has been dominating female running events by claiming to be a transgender woman.
50-year-old Canadian Tiffany Newell, a biological male who claims to have achieved the scientifically impossible feat of “transitioning” to a “woman,” has “won” four different female running competitions so far this year.
Newell claims that he “transitioned” into a woman in 2017.
He began competing in women’s sports in 2020 after claiming to have met World Athletics guidelines on testosterone levels.
Despite being unheard of as a male runner, Newell is now a “record-breaking champion” in female events.
Newell scooped first place at the 3000-meter race for women aged 45-49 event at the Winter Mini Meet on January 8.
He then also ranked first in the women’s 5000-meter event for women aged 45-49 event just days later.
On February 5, Newell repeated the achievement by winning the 1500-meter event for women aged 45-49 competition.
After he turned 50, the athlete then won first place in the 1500-meter race for women aged 50-54 at the competition held from February 23 to February 26 in Toronto.
A group demanding the protection of female competitions called the International Consortium on Women’s Sport reacted to the news by asserting it was a blatant example of “sex discrimination.”
New World #1 in women’s 50-54 age 1500m is a male athlete.
Qs to @WorldAthletics & @WMA_Social :
👉🏼WHY are you not protecting the integrity of the female category?
👉🏼WHY do you insist on showing such blatant sex-discrimination?#SaveWomensSports #WorldAthletics pic.twitter.com/T5zLl6Sdiv

Last year, Newell smashed the Canadian record in the 5000-meter indoor running competition for women aged 45-49 held at Toronto’s York University.
He beat the old record by a whopping six seconds.
During the same event, he also won the 800-meter women’s race.
During a previous interview, the athlete argued against the creation of a category solely for transgender competitors.
“The policy makes sense for non-binary athletes, but I don’t feel comfortable racing against men,” Newell said.
“It categorizes me in the sex I am not identified as.
“I am a woman,” he claimed, “and I feel most comfortable racing against women or other transgender women.
“I believe an open category can work if athletes can continue to race against athletes of the same gender.”
However, despite Newell’s claims, it is impossible to change genders.
There are only two genders: Male and female.
It is impossible to “transition” between the two, no matter what drugs a person takes, what surgery they undergo, or how “woke” they believe they are.

More than a stolen award from women athletes, this is a record that's been ratified because “Tiffany” apparently has “met all the World Athletics requirements to compete as a woman” pic.twitter.com/aCUCi7NPpr

“Despite protests from trans activists, studies have consistently affirmed that trans-identified male athletes retain a significant edge over their female counterparts, even after starting hormone therapy,” Reduxx reports.
“In 2020, a study released in the British Journal of Sport Medicine noted that trans-identified males were able to complete 31% more push-ups and 15% more sit-ups in one minute on average than a female Air Force service member.
“They also ran 1.5 miles 21% faster.”
“But even after two years on testosterone suppression treatment, the males were still 12% faster on average than biological females.”
Earlier this month, American surfing icon Bethany Hamilton vowed to boycott the professional tour over a rule change.
The new rule allows biological males who “identify” as “women” to compete against female surfers.
Last year, the world governing body for swimming slapped a total ban on transgender athletes that have gone through any form of male puberty from taking part in women’s competitions.
Last summer, a poll found that only 28 percent of Americans support transgender athletes being allowed to compete in female sports tournaments.
