    • Abstract:
      The article discusses research by medical physicist Joanna Harper regarding how gender transition alters the physiology and performance of athletes. Topics include concerns regarding whether transgender women have athletic advantages over non-transgender women due to their previous exposure to male levels of testosterone, the International Olympic Committee's decision to revise its rules for transgender competitors after a 2015 meeting with Harper, and her study with exercise physiologist Yannis Pitsiladis.
