Transgender athletes are STILL being allowed to run in UK women’s races, six months after being banned, through a loophole in the rules… as rival runners ‘fear death threats’ if they speak out

Transgender athletes are still able to run in the female category of UK women’s races almost six months after a ban was introduced to prevent them from doing so. The strict clampdown by UK Athletics was introduced in March but a glaring loophole in the rules, which were brought into effect to deny those who have been through male puberty from taking part in women’s athletics, has now emerged. As a result, the effectiveness and enforcement of the restrictions are under question. The rules imposed a ban on transwomen competing in the female category of any event under the jurisdiction of UKA. However, they also included a controversial exemption for competitions in which the places had already been secured.
