Olympic Games – New Zealand wants to help Laurel Hubbard, the first transgender person in the Olympics, to deal with the pressure.

Laurel Hubbard, the first transgender athlete to compete in the Olympics, will represent New Zealand in weightlifting in Tokyo. His choice sparked controversy, and will inevitably come under closer scrutiny. “We work closely with Laurel, as with any athlete, but especially with her because of the tremendous amount of interest it generates.”Ashley Abbott said Saturday. “We’re looking at what it can do best in terms of interacting with the media. So of course there will be limitations.”

Hubbard became selectable in women after she demonstrated that her testosterone levels were lower than recommended by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which was set at 10 nanomols per liter. She will compete in Tokyo in the weight class over 87 kg. But critics have risen up to argue that Hubbard has other advantages linked to his past as a man, making his existence unfair relative to other competitors.“We will continue to work with her to ensure she has support at all times and that she understands the environment in which she operates,” Abbott added.
