MADISON, Wis., Feb. 25, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Transgenders Terry Miller (Bloomfield High) and Andraya Yearwood (Cromwell High) finished first and second in the 55 meter dash at the Connecticut open indoor track championships.
Miller set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds and Yearwood finished in 7.01. Miller also won the 300 meter.
Last year, Miller and Yearwood went 1-2 in the 100 meter at the outdoor championships.
Seventeen states, including Connecticut, allow transgender high school athletes to compete without restrictions. Seven states have restrictions making it difficult for them to compete.
Some of the restrictions include requiring athletes to compete at their birth certificate gender, or require sex-reassignment surgery or hormone therapy. Other states have no policy or go on a case-by-case basis.
Steve McConkey operates 4 Winds Christian Athletics, a worldwide ministry based in Madison, Wisconsin that stands up for Christian athletes.
"Connecticut high school officials reflect the politically correct environment that is rampant in our society," states McConkey. "It is so corrupt that our leaders do not know the difference between a transgender athlete and a woman. Transgender athletes should be barred from competing with women because they have irreversible physical advantages."
In 2003, McConkey started fighting the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.
From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, and the military. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.
The IOC will decide in the next few weeks on whether or not to drop the maximum allowable testosterone level from 10 to 5 nanomoles for transgender and intersex athletes. This will make it more difficult for these athletes to compete if approved.
