'Dispiriting': Track star's dream dashed by transgender rules--Girl now in court race before she graduates
The Louisiana State University Lady Tigers have won 25 national championships in track and field, and Alanna Smith dreams of contributing to another someday.
She just doesn’t think she should have to beat guys to get there........She is now a junior at Danbury High School in Connecticut. As a freshman, she took the New England crown in the 400 meters. The sprinter also focuses on two other races: the 100- and 200-meter.
But Alanna finds herself racing in a mixed-up, jumbled-up, shaken-up world. Transgender athletes are asserting a right to compete as they identify their gender to be. Runners who weren’t even at Alanna’s indoor or outdoor meets in junior high school because they were boys are now in the blocks in the next lane. She is a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed in February 2020 that seeks to bar people who were born male from competing in girls’ and women’s sports. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/mar/14/alanna-smith-track-star-dreams-dashed-transgender-/
