Is it possible to find a balance between fairness in competition and the rights of transgender athletes? With the 2020 Olympics finally underway in Japan, the subject of transgender athletes has become a hot-button issue once again with the inclusion of transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard.

This week, RT’s No BS podcast with Ben Swann asks, does Hubbard have an unfair advantage over her competition? Guests include Phil Andrews, the CEO of USA Weightlifting; Dr Nancy Williams, the Director of Fair Play for Women; Joanna Harper, the author of the ‘Sporting Gender’; and Debbie Hayton, transgender campaigner and educator.
