A BOLA - transsexuals are not allowed to compete in women's competitions (swimming)

The International Swimming Federation (FINA) this Sunday approved a new gender inclusion policy and created an “open category” that prevents transgender people from competing in elite women’s competitions unless they have completed the transition by age 12.

Organization President Hussain Al-Musallam explained: “We must protect the rights of our athletes to compete, as well as protect the fairness of the competition in our competitions, especially in the women’s category. FINA will always be glad to all athletes. Creating an open category will mean that everyone will have the opportunity to compete at the elite level. This has never happened before, so FINA will have to lead. I want all athletes to feel involved so that we can develop ideas during this process.

During the World Championships in Budapest, FINA decided to be the “first sport” to create an “open category”, and for this purpose a working group will be formed that “in the next six months” will outline the forms of the same.

The measures, passed by 71% of the votes of 152 members in an extraordinary congress, require transgender participants to complete the transition by age 12 in order to compete in women’s competition.

The decision came during a swimming controversy involving North American transgender swimmer Leah Thomas, a 22-year-old student who recently became the first transgender swimmer to win a national varsity title, and some argue that Thomas, having competed as a male in the past, took advantage of the physiological advantage classified as unfair.

This view was supported after FINA set up a panel made up of athletes, lawyers and medical experts that concluded that men who became women retained the benefits of “bigger hearts, longer bones, bigger legs and arms”. “.

BALL - Francisco J. Marquez and roller hockey classic: "FC Porto's whistle was blown" (FC Porto)

Benfica’s victory over Porto (5:3) in the fourth match of the final of the national roller hockey championship caused some criticism of the refereeing from the Dragons.

Ricardo Ares [treinador do FC Porto] did not comment on the actions of the referee, limiting himself to stating that in 30 minutes Benfica had only two fouls, which would be surprising in a friendly game, not to mention a tense playoff match. In the 16th minute the foul score was 8-8, a natural balance in line with the history of the games between the two teams and even in harmony with the balance between the championship finalists. From that moment on, the whistle was blown at Porto and released at Benfica. Porto were winning 1-0 and the foul streak started for only one side, with Benfica taking advantage of the 10th foul to equalize. A new advantage for our team and a few more fouls for Benfica, who drew from a free kick on the 15th foul. At the 15th minute of the game the score was 7-0 on fouls, after 8-8 of the first 16 minutes. Until 21 minutes later, the ninth foul of Benfica followed, when the score was already 4-2.

Futsal: Sporting beat Benfica again and became national champion

Sporting are two-time national futsal champions after beating Benfica 4-3 tonight in the third game of the championship final.

After winning two overtime wins in their first two games, the Lions took the field this Saturday knowing they could end the night. And the task, it must be said, was difficult, painful, but not so much that additional time was required … for very little.

At half-time, the team led by Nuno Dias had already had a hand in Kaneko as they won 3-0. In futsal, things can change from moment to moment, but this has not happened, despite the latest threat to the formation of Pulpis.

GAME FILM.

Goals from Pauleta, Cavinato and Cardinal were answered by goalkeeper André Sousa – with the help of Merlin’s precious deflection – with a cut to 3-1 early in the second period.

The Eagles had a new hope, which Ziki Te tried to cool shortly after, taking advantage of the rebound from the beautiful shot of Pani Varela.

But there was still a game.

Arthur returned to reduce for the Reds, twice, and the eagle returned to be in discussion in the title. So much so that Arthur himself hit the post at the last second, in a dramatic final that once again crowned the lion.

Sporting repeat the triumph of last season and win the 17th league title in history. This increases the difference with the rival Benfica, which has eight achievements in history.
