Transgender Cyclist Rachel McKinnon continues to smash women's cycling records, the latest being a "world record" in the women's 200m sprint.
But not everyone was thrilled by the big win. Jennifer Wagner-Assali, a competitor who lost to McKinnon in the past " but did not race last weekend " called McKinnon's win "unfair," the Times reported.
"It was an unfair race, and I accepted that when I pinned on the number, and I tried to do my best to overcome the unfairness," Wagner-Assali said of McKinnon's dominance over natural-born female racers. "I do feel that hard-fought freedoms for women's sport are being eroded. If we continue to let this happen, there will be men's sports and co-ed sports, but there won't be any women's sports," Wagner-Assali added.
