Biological male wins NCAA women’s track championship

By Peter Hasson

A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won an NCAA national championship over Memorial Day weekend.

Franklin Pierce University (FPU) runner CeCe Telfer won the DII women’s 400-meter hurdles on Saturday night, besting the second-place finisher by more than a second.

“Telfer is the first student-athlete in Franklin Pierce history to collect an individual national title,” the university announced.

“It was tough conditions out here with the wind and the heat over the last three days but, as she has over the last six months, CeCe proved herself to be tough enough to handle it,” FPU coach Zach Emerson said in a press release.

“Today was a microcosm of her entire season; she was not going to let anything slow her down. I’ve never met anybody as strong as her mentally in my entire life,” Emerson said.

Telfer’s victory came less than two hours after taking fifth place in the 100-meter hurdles. OutSports, a pro-LGBT sports website, touted Telfer as “a trans athlete who doesn’t win every time.”

Telfer previously ran a variety of events for Franklin Pierce’s men’s team, during most of which time he went by the first name Craig, according to school records.

Telfer competed on FPU’s men’s track team as recently as January 2018, according to published meet results from the Middlebury Winter Classic in Vermont. Telfer had started using the name CeCe at that point, while still competing on the men’s team.

NCAA policy is that male athletes who identify as transgender can compete on women’s teams if they suppress their testosterone levels for a full calendar year. Otherwise, so-called mixed teams — which have both males and females — can compete in the men’s division, but not in the women’s division, according to NCAA rules.

The NCAA in 2011 published an explainer calling it “not well founded” to assume “that being born with a male body automatically gives a transgender woman an unfair advantage when competing against non-transgender women.”

Telfer’s victory is just the latest instance of male athletes who identify as transgender entering — and then winning — female athletic events.

Two male runners have dominated girls’ high school track in Connecticut, which a female competitor described as “demoralizing.”

Rachel McKinnon, a biological male who identifies as transgender, won a women’s world championship cycling event in October.

  1. These sports should go back to the original Olympics style–completely naked. Then we can see who is actually qualified to compete as a man or a woman…
    So they qualify as the opposite sex if they “suppress their testosterone levels for a full calendar year”…
    What’s that supposed to mean? Doping?
    Can’t people see that this is insane? What future is there for today’s children at this rate? Looks bleak to men.

  2. Sign of the times, all I can say is you reap what you sow. Cheaters will always be cheaters.

  3. What a poor excuse for a athlete. Coward who could only
    get 8th place against males takes the slime road of running
    against the girls to get a win. Poor excuse for a human being
    using the confused gender excuse to pretend at being
    a winner. Sorry fool your the biggest of loosers and always
    will be. I bet liar sqaw warren loves that you like her steal
    someone else’s identity to steal someone else’s spot at the
    top. Disgusting piece of stinking crap, just like the collegiate sports that allow this crap.

  4. Wow, CeCe Telfer’s victory, something this fool should be proud of !!

    When you can’t make it in sports as a man, just change your name and tell everyone
    you now a woman ……………. He may have one, but he’s still a loser…. No Shame !!
