Kristen Worley: taking on the IOC for transgender athletes

From Nine To Noon, 10:09 am on 26 January 2018

Kristen Worley is a Canadian transgender athlete who won a precedent-setting case last year, against the International Olympic Committee over its policies on gender testing and hormone regulation. The case has sent ripples throughout the sporting world, as it questions how sports' governing bodies distinguish and define male and female athletes. Kristen Worley also has a strong link with this country - her birth mother is a New Zealander, and this year Kristen will become a New Zealand citizen.
