Unsporting: How Trans Activism and Science Denial are Destroying Sport
2003: Dr Richard Budgett, in which he discusses the consequences of trans women competing in women’s sport. responding to a government inquiry, Budgett, then at the British Olympic Association, states: “the effect of allowing male transsexuals to compete as women would be to make competition unfair and potentially dangerous in some sports and would undermine women’s sports.”.
2021: "Everyone agrees that trans women are women" .
2022: The science has not changed - the politics have!
June 2022: The World Athletics president, Sebastian Coe, has hailed swimming’s decision to ban transgender women from elite female competition as in “the best interests of its sport” – and hinted that track and field could soon follow suit.
July 2022: British Triathlon has announced that for athletes over the age of 12, there will be two categories; a Female Category, (for those who are the female sex at birth), and an Open Category, (for all individuals including male, transgender and those non-binary who were male sex at birth
November 30, 2022: Disappointingly World Athletics kicked the transgender "can" down the road to March 2023. The question is why? The science is clear and it is settled - men have an unfair advantge over women in sport. Stop trying to pretend otherwise.
January 21, 2023: World Athletics proposals to preserve path for trans women in female category.
Jamuary 22, 2023: Given Coe's previous strong stements about protecting female athletes one wonders if the pressure to include males in female sport is coming from someone else?
February 3, 2023: UK Athletics backs ban on trans women from female competition<
March 23, 2023: World Athletics Council excludes transgender women from female events
Ruling applies to athletes who have transitioned after puberty - Levels of permitted plasma testosterone also reduced by half
From ICONS:a very important point:
In regard to transgender athletes, the Council has agreed to exclude male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty from female World Rankings competition from 31 March 2023."
This is a move in the right direction.
However, It cannot be that only elite female athletes are deserving of fair competition and equal opportunity - the problems now fall on the far less visible girls and women in the world - young girls and athletes in sports at every level deserve fair competition and encouragement to thrive in their sports.
April 28, 2023: Linda Blade has retired as president of the board of Athletics Alberta in Canada. She has been at the forefront of the battle for protection of women's sports in Canada and the world.
July 11, 2023: Carole Hooven, an Evolutionary Biologist , and author of the book "T: The Story of Testosterone, the Hormone that Dominates and Divides Us", - "Caster and others with her DSD are not females with "hyperandrogenism," i.e., abnormally high levels of testosterone. They are MALES with testosterone-producing testes and XY sex chromosomes, and normal levels of testosterone for their sex."
July 14, 2023: UCI bans males who have gone through puberty as males from comepting as females.
August 2, 2023: British Rowing to ban transgender athletes from women's events after members urge policy change
British Rowing's decision comes after 80 per cent of its members called for a change in approach

Run Healthy
The Runner's Guide to Injury Prevention and Treatment
Author:Emmi Aguillard Jonathan Cane Allison L. Goldstein

If you are a serious runner, you are well aware of the aches and pains associated with the sport. Run Healthy: The Runner’s Guide to Injury Prevention and Treatment was written to help you distinguish discomfort from injury. It provides the latest science-based and practical guidance for identifying, treating, and minimizing the most common injuries in track, road, and trail running.
Gain a better understanding of how the musculoskeletal system functions and responds to training. Develop a practical and effective training plan to address the regions where injuries most often occur: feet and toes, ankles, knees, hips, and low back. Learn how a combination of targeted strength training, mobility exercises, and running drills can improve running form, economy, and performance.
When injuries inevitably happen, you’ll know how to identify them, treat them, and recover from them. Get targeted recommendations for some of the most common issues runners face, such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, hamstring tendinitis and tendinopathy, and IT band syndrome.
Throughout, you’ll hear from 17 runners on how the techniques in this book helped them overcome their injuries and got them quickly and safely back to training and racing. You’ll also find an in-depth discussion of alternative therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, CBD, cryotherapy, and cleanses to help you separate fact from fiction and decide for yourself which, if any, of these therapies to pursue.
Injuries can and do happen, but with Run Healthy you’ll be running strong for many years to come.
