Transgender Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Wins Two Gold Medals At Pacific Games

A biological male took home two gold medals and a silver medal for New Zealand this month at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa.

Laurel Hubbard once again steamrolled the competition in the women’s division, finishing first in he snatch-lift and combined categories, according to a Washington Times report published Monday.

The gold medal winner was born as Gavin Hubbard, and competed in the male weightlifting division until the transition in 2012. Hubbard became a household name in 2017 after breaking several records in the female division of the World Masters Games. That year, Hubbard lifted a combined total of 617 lbs in the clean and jerk division, smashing previous records.

In 2018, a biological female was able to place first in the Commonwealth Games after Hubbard suffered a gruesome elbow injury.

Hubbard’s dominance continues the trend of transgender athletes’ success in women’s sports. Earlier this month, a group of female power lifters spoke out in favor of an official U.S. power lifting rule that banned biological males from competing in women’s sports, claiming that it creates an unfair advantage for transgender athletes.

Earlier this month, House Democrats passed a bill that would require schools to allow biological males to compete in women’s sports if they identify as female. The Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected classes. The bill was supported by all Democrats and several Republicans.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    Big deal – a guy can lift more than a woman. Where are the feminists looking out for the women?

    Transgenders are mentally ill

  • I’m still looking forward to the high school or college girls basketball tournament when a team has 5 former male starters and totally dominates the tournament. Girls sports are dead, soon to be taken over by transgender athletes. Our society is dying and soon we’ll all be in the same line for our bag of rice regardless of sex, race, or country of origin.

    There will be no women’s sport So! Transgegers will take it over, no biological woman will train hard to compete against men and lose! If women could compete against men there would have never been women sports they would have been combined! No woman is as strong as men, no matter how strong she is. There is no transgender women that is trying to compete in men’s sports because they would not be able to excel in them or even survive! So the losers in this crap are women’s!
