Well No Shit: Transgender Powerlifter Stripped of Female World Record after it is Determined that he is a Male.
A man who is trying to turn himself into a woman competed in the US Powerlifting Federation event last month. Mary Gregory broke four women’s world records in the squat, bench press and deadlift disciplines as well as the total record in his weight class. However, the Federation ruled he was ineligible after drug testing proved he was a male. “The lifter exceeded the current female world records in this lifter’s age and weight category. This automatically calls for drug testing protocol which takes place at the end of every event. The drug testing coordinator for this event performed the drug test at which time it was revealed that this female lifter was actually a male in the process of becoming a transgender female,” the federation said in a statement.
