First trans who won international women’s weightlifting title

Laurel Hubbard, from New Zealand, is a 39-year-old who won the international women’s weightlifting title in Australia in 2017.

Laurel Hubbard made history by becoming the first female to win an international weightlifting title for New Zealand. But her victory in the over-90-kilogram division, in which she lifted a combined total of 268 kilograms (roughly 590 pounds) to best silver medalist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa by 19 kilograms (roughly 42 pounds), was not without controversy.

Despite a year’s worth of blood tests showing Hubbard had no more testosterone running through her veins than any of the other female weightlifters competing in the Australian International, some of those Hubbard beat questioned the fairness of the competition.

Bodybuilding contest

A 34-year-old Swan Stinson is a man who was a woman. In 2015, he has won the first Bodybuilding contest.

“If someone had asked me a year ago if you would change anything I would say yes, that I was born in the right body, ask me that same question today and I would say, not a thing,” he said.

Stinson told Al Jazeera he was happy to be selected winner of the bodybuilding contest once again but has already set his sights on other goals. He wants to compete in a mainstream bodybuilding competition and raise the profile of athletes, “I am up for the challenge,” he said.

story wins Oscar

history was made at the Academy Awards when “A Fantastic Woman” nabbed the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Directed by Sebastián Lelio, the Chilean drama follows a trans waitress and singer, Marina Vidal (played by Daniela Vega), whose grief over the sudden death of her lover, Orlando (Francisco Reyes), is compounded by the scorn she experiences from his family.

“A Fantastic Woman” makes history as the first Oscar winner to feature a storyline with an openly trans performer in the lead role. Although the movie originally featured a cisgender protagonist, Lelio updated the script after he began working with Vega, who had appeared in only one other film (2014′s “The Guest”) before taking on the role of Marina.
