Gavin/Laurel Hubbard (center)

Wealthy New Zealander Gavin Hubbard, now calling himself “Laurel”, bumped two women from their Olympic weightlifting qualifying slots after he decided to compete in the women’s category. Hubbard is the son of cereal magnate and former Auckland mayor Dick Hubbard, best known for his position against allowing gay people to marry or raise their own biological children. [1]

Gavin “Laurel” Hubbard, 39, was a one-time nationally ranked weightlifter in his twenties [2] but he failed to make his mark competing against other males. He remained active in the sport, funding various events and serving as the Executive Officer of OWNZ (Olympic Wrestling of New Zealand) until his position was eliminated last year. [3]

Hubbard responded to the loss of his authority by funding a new state-of-the-art weightlifting facility to host and sponsor the OWNZ competition itself. [4]

OWNZ then authorized the women’s competition that Hubbard won on Sunday March 19 at the Australasion Championships in Melbourne.

Spot the middle-aged dude

OWNZ cited IOC guidelines for transgenderism, which allow any male who can prove his testosterone levels are 10 nmol/L or below for one year duration to compete in the women’s division. Any female can compete in the male category if she qualifies regardless of her hormone levels. No female athlete has ever qualified to compete against males under IOC guidelines.  Female athletes that outperform males in male events (example: high jump skiing) have not been allowed to compete. [5]

Typical testosterone levels for males are 9-38 nmol/L, and for females 0.52-2.4 nmol/L. So the IOC guidelines allow typical males to compete “as women” if their testosterone levels are in the low normal male range:

 

The IOC position is that males with testosterone levels in lower male average are female, but testosterone levels in female athletes are irrelevant. It is unknown if Hubbard qualified for the women’s division by medically reducing his testosterone levels or if he is just naturally on the low normal range for males.

When it became known that Hubbard intended to destroy the ranking [6] of female New Zealand Olympian Tracey Lambrechs [Rio 2016) by competing as a male in the women’s 90k+ category, Ms. Lambrechs immediately set her sites on competing against other women by the only means left available to her: qualifying for another weight category away from men.

This involved rapidly losing 38 pounds in order to compete in the nearest woman-only class.

“It was a big shock,” Lambrechs told Radio Sport [on March 4]. “At first I was quite angry and then confused and upset.

“I was taken aback when it first happened but I have no control over anything around me, so I’ve really just been focusing on myself and whatever happens happens.”

She said OWNZ had advised it would only select one competitor per weight division for the world championships.” [7]

Lambrechs. Kickin Ass.

The female Olympian somehow managed to shed the weight in time but underperformed on Sunday as a result. “Obviously losing all that weight my body shape has changed and so my technique is a little bit clumsy at the moment”, Lambrechs had stated back on March 4. She came in second place after the rapid weight loss regimen, losing her qualifying ranking.

The new first place champion of the Australasian heavyweight women’s division, Samoan Iuniara Sipaia, was also stripped of her title and ranking. You can see her on the left below.

OWNZ sponsor and former Executive Officer, white male Gavin “Laurel” Hubbard,  will take her place as women’s heavyweight champion.

Saturday night in Florida, Fallon “Queen of Swords” Fox was at the height of “her” game as she knocked out opponent Ericka Newsome in 39 second bout with a knee to the face.

Now, he has been outed as a man and his licensure is under investigation.

Fallon, who, like many male transgenders, embarked on a new athletic career when he realized he could compete against females, failed to disclose his sex when he applied for his license to the Florida State Boxing Commission.

From Sports Illustrated:

“Our department is currently investigating allegations pertaining to the information provided on [Fox’s] application,” wrote Sandi Copes Poreda, Director of Communications for the DBPR, which oversees the Florida State Boxing Commission.

On her application, a copy of which was provided to SI.com, Fox stated that she held an MMA combatant’s license issued in 2013 by the California State Athletic Commission. However, CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster confirmed that Fox’s application for licensure was still under review, though the fighter and her manager, Brett Atchley, believed she had received notice of her licensure in the mail in late February. Licensure secured in other jurisdictions — particularly in a key state like California — can weigh heavily on a regulatory body’s review of a new applicant’s information.

In addition, Fox admits she did not disclose her transgender history, and presumably the pertaining medical documents that would have accompanied her Florida application, because she was not asked to”.

Officials dispute Fox’s claim that his license to fight in his upcoming scheduled April 20 match in California has been approved:

“Fox claims her CSAC-issued combatant’s license was mailed to her approximately two weeks ago, after she’d spoken with a CSAC representative via phone and submitted an application packet containing the required medical paperwork, as well as a detailed history of her transgender-related surgeries.

CSAC Executive Officer Foster said the state agency had only mailed Fox a receipt for the initial $60 application — the standard procedure for all athletes who file for licensure consideration. In addition, Foster said that Fox also applied for a national identification card with his office and that approval was also still pending. The card is a second requirement of athletes wishing to compete within most North American jurisdictions, as it connects the fighter’s records to a central database those commissions can collectively review. Fox stated she’d been granted the card in Florida. However, the DBPR said this second application was still pending.

“I think it’s imperative to remember that the Florida commission allowed this fight, not the California commission,” said Foster. “California merely received and is processing the application. We’re working on the necessary medical reviews. We simply have an application.”

 Fox claims to have undergone some sort of transgender-related surgical procedure in 2006 and made his professional fighting debut against women athletes last year at the age of 37:

For her pro debut in May 2012, Fox fought in Idaho for the King of the Cage promotion, which franchises its brand worldwide to multiple, non-affiliated promoters at any given time. Fox said the bout, which she won by first-round stoppage, took place on sovereign land, which is exempt from state oversight. Fox said she was only required to submit bloodwork and take a pregnancy test, and was unsure if she’d done so under the promotion itself or an overseeing body assigned by the Coeur D’Alene Native American Tribe. Fox’s three previous amateur bouts, all won by first-round submission, were held in Illinois, where she is a resident.”

An article on OutSports tells a confusing story about how his father somehow forced him- at the age of 27, to enter an anti-gay conversion therapy program: 

Ten years ago, Fox told her parents that she felt like she was born in the wrong body. Her mother rejected the news. Her father told her she was actually a confused gay man. Fox insisted that she wasn’t gay, and that she was mostly attracted to other women. Her father was unrelenting and put her in gay-conversion therapy. There she was treated by a gay-conversion therapist who tried to convince Fox that she was a gay man so that he could turn her into a straight man.

OutSports has announced their intention to film a documentary about Fox, who they refer to as a “Female MMA Fighter”. If Fox was actually female, would they be rushing to create a documentary? Here is a preview:
