Another lifter told New Zealand TV news station 1News Now Hubbard’s entry into the female category was unfair to other competitors.
“We all deserve to be on an even playing field,” the weightlifter said.
“It’s difficult when you believe that you’re not. If its not even, why are we doing the sport?” she said.
You can have fairness, but not equality. Pick one. Now everybody wins! Or everybody loses. If There is any consolation it is that the ladies apparently lost to Frank Sobotka.
Why do we have sports segregated by sex anyway in the current year?
