Transgender Wrestler Mack Beggs Booed After Winning Texas Girls Title

"Even though I was put in this position, even though I didn't want to be put in this position, even though I wanted to wrestle the guys, I still had to wrestle the girls". He is allowed to take the testosterone, even though State and UIL rules prohibit their use by high school athletes, because they are "dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical goal".

Under Texas law, athletes are required to compete against other athletes who have the same gender on their birth certificates. Beggs posed. "I can tell the state Legislature to change the policy, but I can't tell them to change it right now".

"He [she] has so much respect for all the girls he [she] wrestles", McNew, told The Associated Press (AP), according to the New York Post. The girls he [she] wrestles with, they are tough.

A UIL policy also says that student-athletes in high school must compete as the gender that's on their birth certificate. It was done to help schools determine competition, according to the UIL's deputy director Jamie Harrison.

Beggs refused interviews after her state-championship win.

Cheers and boos greeted the judges' decision but it confirmed what everybody already knew about Mack Beggs: he is by far the best in his girls' wrestling weight class in Texas. Ones which grew louder when Trinity coach Travis Clark put the gold medal around Beggs' neck.

Haley disagreed, saying the Trump administration was offering "an outstretched hand" to the Palestinian people and their leaders. Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said Abbas' words and actions made it clear he was "no longer part of the solution".

Beggs told the Dallas Morning News' Sports Day that she had been forced to compete against girls. "It has more to do with skill and discipline than strength".

"I understand if you want to transition your gender", she said, according to the News.

The solitude allowed him to concentrate on the task ahead and perhaps shield him from attacks on social media and occasional insults from the stands - or even other wrestling mats - during meets. It just comes down to technique, who has the most heart.

This season, Beggs has gone 36-0 with just one forfeit and no lawsuits.

"Honestly, I didn't even care about the boos", Beggs contended after winning the championship previous year, according to CNN.

Although Beggs and his family have stated repeatedly that he would like to wrestle boys, the law does not yet allow it. Lets hope for a progressive change!
