Comment of the Week

“Thank you for your comments regarding sex segregation in sports. As a father of 4 daughters who have competed at high levels in different sports and as a previous doctor for the us spseedskating programs, i would like to advise some thoughtful caution Female sports in the USA are thriving due to 40 years of mandated “equal access.” Gaps in performance between male and female in many sports are narrowing, especially endurance sports. However, testosterone (and other) intrinsic differences in hormone levels make for an uneven playing field. Female athletes and their families work just as hard, sacrifice just as much as male athletes to achieve their competition goals. We need to be very careful about eliminating fairness for the many to make it fairer for the few. Perhaps with more time and sport evolution, gender requirements can be fairly dispensed with. But not quite yet..”

-Nice comment.
