Following on from the publication of the World Athletics statement on Transgender and DSD regulations UK Athletics (UKA) has published a principle statement on Transgender Eligibility in Athletics in the United Kingdom.
The statement reads; ‘UKA are fully considering the details of the World Athletics statement on transgender and DSD participation in athletics and its implications for competition in the UK, but in principle we support and welcome the direction they have taken in protecting the female category.
‘This direction reflects the submission made by UKA to World Athletics earlier this year.
‘At the same time, we remain committed to continuing to work alongside the Home Country Athletics Federations and our Transgender Project Group to maintain the inclusivity of our sport and ensure that transgender women are able to continue to compete whilst respecting these rules.’
