15 examples of female athletes crushed by women who were men

first_imgWND.com 27 March 2017Transgenders dominate in weightlifting, track, wrestling, football, basketball, mixed martial artsYou’ve heard the expression, “Boys will be boys.” But what happens when a brawny boy wants to be one of the girls – fiercely competing with females in weightlifting, brutally tackling girls on the football field or even dealing powerful knockout punches to ladies in a mixed martial-arts cage?It’s now happening across America and around the world.Biological males are joining women’s teams, smashing records and dominating in sports such as weightlifting, softball, cycling, track, wrestling, football, volleyball, dodgeball, handball, cricket, golf, basketball and mixed martial arts.The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. But in the world of sports, critics argue, equality between the sexes simply doesn’t exist. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased.To document the growing trend, WND has compiled the following list of headline-making transgender athletes crashing the world of women’s sports.READ MORE: http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/female-athletes-crushed-by-women-who-were-once-men/last_img read more

Pearson: Survival still possible

first_img “That’s where we are. There’s always quite an honest recognition of where we are. For sure we have to get back to being more ruthless in front of goal but we have a belief in the players we have we can make progress.” Dean Hammond (calf) and Anthony Knockaert (personal reasons) are out for the Foxes aiming to avenge a 2-1 home league defeat on Boxing Day. They will face Harry Kane after the Spurs striker earned his first England senior call-up on Thursday. Kane spent four months on loan at the King Power – scoring two goals – in 2013 and Pearson believes his selection is deserved. “It’s been, for a lot of people, quite unexpected but he has had a fantastic season so far,” he said. “It’s a positive story for English football and he has made incredible progress. He has worked hard on his game and forced his way into the best 11 on the back of European form earlier in the season. I’m pleased for him. He is a likeable young man.” The Foxes go to Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday still rooted to the bottom of the table. Pearson’s side have been at the foot since November and are seven points from the safety line with 10 games left. They have won just once in their last nine league games and the boss conceded their form must improve, but still believes they can stay up. He said: “It’s still a big task for us and with the points we have on the board and shift in form we have to achieve there won’t be too many people who share my beliefs. “The players remain very upbeat and 10 games left is still a sizeable chunk and we have to make sure it’s a successful 10 games. “We have to make sure we remain in touch and that our destiny stays in our own hands. That’s what we have to try to do. We have 10 games left, six of them at home. “Our home form has not been what we would have liked but if we get into the latter stages, with four or five games at home, in contact it’s something we can be relatively positive about.” The Foxes have drawn a blank in their last two games with nine-goal top scorer Leonardo Ulloa failing to net in his last six outings, since Leicester beat Tottenham 2-1 in the FA Cup in January. But Pearson insisted they cannot afford to dwell on the past. “We’ve not really created enough in some games but we could also rue missed chances and if we wanted to we could bemoan ill fortune with some decisions,” he said. Boss Nigel Pearson admits Leicester are being written off but vowed they will keep fighting to survive. Press Associationlast_img read more
