“We are conducting a review of our transgender policy and this is a current work in progress in consultation with the IOC (International Olympic Committee),” a spokesperson for the IHF told Reuters on Wednesday.
“Currently we are following the IOC’s guidelines regarding sports where physical strength is a factor,” an ICF spokesperson said.
Advocates for transgender inclusion argue that not enough studies have yet been done on the impact of transition on physical performance, and that elite athletes are often physical outliers in any case.
New Zealand Rugby (NZR) said on Wednesday it was undertaking a consultation over its transgender eligibility policy in the grassroots of the game and was aiming to be as inclusive as possible.
