Caitlin Jenner, Australian swimming legend celebrates ban on transgender people swimming

The ban on transgender swimmers competing in major women’s competitions was celebrated by trans celebrity Caitlin Jenner – as well as a three-time Olympic gold medalist who said athletes were too scared of a culture of cancellation to admit that everyone supported her.

Jenner, the decathlon winner of the Olympic gold medal, celebrated the news by reporting to The Post on a significant decision on Sunday by FINA, which covers the Olympic Games.

“It was successful!” tweeted Jenner, 72, one of the most prominent transgender people who regularly fights Leah Thomas, who dominates women’s events in the pool.

“I took a lot of heat – but what is fair is fair!” Insisted the former star of the film “Keeping up with Kardashian”.

“If you go through male puberty, you should not be able to take away medals from women. “The point,” Jenner tweeted.

Some of Jenner’s transgender followers were among those who joined her celebrations.

“We all understand this truth,” tweeted Anna von Harlot, saying she “speaks like a trans woman.”

“Acceptance is vital, but not at the cost of defying logic. “Unfortunately, the political arm of the Trans Movement does not see it that way,” she wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Australian swimming legend Emily Seebohm – three-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion – he told Channel 9 early Monday that she was “100%” relieved by the decision.

“We all feel the same – we were just too scared to be the first to say something,” she told the Australian Channel’s Today Show.

“It’s such a difficult topic. “Nobody wants to be the first to say something because you are afraid of canceling the culture,” she said.

“It simply came to our notice then. If you say one wrong thing, you’re done. “

She believed that the same fear delayed FINA’s decision, which she believed “100%” should have come earlier.

“They were just sitting on the fence. “Nobody wanted to be that first person because they were scared,” she said, insisting that the vast majority of those in sports support it.

Now, however, he expects others to follow him.

“This will only be a snowball effect – we are one of the first sports to make a decision,” she predicted.

Seebohm stressed that FINA is proposing a new open division that would continue to allow trans swimmers to compete.

“We don’t say no to transgender athletes, we say ‘Yes, we will make a category for you,'” she said.
