World Athletics Bans Biological Men from Women’s Sports

The World Athletics announced Thursday afternoon that “male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty” will not be able to compete in women’s sports.

World Athletics is the international governing organization that sets rules and regulates competition for cross-country, road, track, and field, and ultra running.

The governing body’s president, Sebastian Coe, announced the results of the vote at a Thursday press conference and confirmed that the organization would be banning transgender women athletes from female events.

“The council has agreed to exclude male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty from female world ranking competitions from March the 31st this year.”

He explained that the rule is necessary to protect women’s sports.

‘The decision that the council made is a primarily principle-based decision and that is the overarching need to protect the female category. This is what our sport is here to do.”

However, Coe left the door open to backing off of the policy in the future.


“However, in order to do further research into our transgender eligibility guideline, we will be establishing a working group whose remit will be to consult specifically with transgender athletes to seek views on competing in athletics to review and maybe commission additional research where there is currently limited research, and to put forward recommendations to council.”

The presser involved several other announcements and was shared on video.

Coe also announced rules involving athletes with differences in sexual development (DSD). The rule applies to women with 46  X and Y chromosomes (a typical male pattern) and testosterone levels in the male range. The new rules would require these individuals to manage testosterone levels so as not to provide an unfair advantage,

“For DSD athletes, the new regulations will require any relevant athletes to reduce their testosterone levels below a limit of 2.5 nmol/L for a minimum of 24 months to compete internationally in the female category in any event, not just the events that were restricted (400m to one mile) under the previous regulations.”

In January, World Athletics announced their preferred method of dealing with transgender athletes was just this policy, mandating the reduction of testosterone levels to 2.5 nmol/L and increasing the transition period to two years. But according to the Daily Mail, this led to a massive backlash from female athletes and women’s rights campaigners who wanted a blanket ban on males in women’s sports, which World Athletics eventually agreed to.


Moreover, World Athletics announced it would continue banning Russian and Belarusian athletes. Initially banned for using performance-enhancing drugs, the organization is extending the ban due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“The Council agreed to the reinstatement of the Russian Federation (RusAF) following seven years of suspension due to egregious institutional doping violations. However, athletes, officials and supporting personnel from Russia and Belarus are still excluded from competition for the foreseeable future due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”
