The Beijing Winter Olympics are less than one month away, prompting heated debates about eligibility. The Tokyo Olympics saw the first transgender and intersex athletes compete in the Games’ history, but not everyone supports the milestone.

In November the International Olympic Committee announced a new framework for transgender and intersex athletes recognizing, “Both the need to ensure that everyone, irrespective of their gender identity or sex variations, can practice sport in a safe, harassment-free environment that recognizes and respects their needs and identities.”

As more transgender people feel more comfortable being themselves in the mainstream world, the Morning Show with Nikki Medoro addresses the ongoing debate about how to make the playing field fair for transgender and cis athletes.

Listen to callers share their thoughts on what will happen to men’s and women’s sports with the new adaptations.
