Former Olympic weightlifter Tracey Lambrechs claims that female athletes have been told to “be quiet” about transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard who will be taking part in the women’s competitions.

Hubbard, a 43-year-old biological male is making his Olympic debut as a woman. If Hubbard passes the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) fitness and performance standards, she would become the first trans athlete to compete in the Olympics.
