A transgender bicyclist says he entered a women's bicycle race not to qualify for further competition, gain a trophy, or any of many usual reasons.
He wanted to "stir controversy."
And prove that men do have a physical advantage in such competitions.
A report at Breitbart discusses cyclist Na Hwa-rin's participation in a women's race in South Korea.
The report explained he "said he was 'not proud' of his win and that he 'felt sorry' for the women he beat, but he did it for a greater point."
"I am not honored. I am not proud of myself at all. I believe other transgender athletes would feel the same way. They may not want to admit it, but they’re being selfish. There is no honor as an athlete in that," he said in the report. "I have no unresolved feelings over winning because that’s no longer what I want. My goal was to stir controversy and get my story heard by competing."
A local publication explained, "When [he] crossed the finish line in the women’s race, [he] was ‘more relieved than triumphant’ because [he] felt [he] finally made [his] point about male physical superiority and gender inclusion in sports. At the same time, Na felt sorry for the female cyclists who competed against [him] and offered them energy drinks as a kind of apology during the race."
He declined to accept a qualification for the nation's National Sports Festival, the report said.
His recommended solution would be for sports groups to have a category for transgenders.
