A tipster sent us this video:
CeCe Telfer, who was born as a man, but now competes as a woman is #2 at the NCAA 2 level in the 100h.
When I watch it, it reminds me very much of one thing that even hormone treatments don't impact - height. It's a huge advantage to be much taller in a hurdles race.
Update: Some more thoughts.
So what I'm confused about is why if she's on hormones her times this year aren't any slower than what she ran as a man.
Below you will see a comparison of her PBs as a man and woman.
55 7.01 7.02
60 7.67 7.63
100 12.17 (-1.2) 12.24 (0.6)
200 24.03 24.30 (-3.9)
400 55.77 54.41
55H 7.98 7.91
60H 8.52 8.33
Can someone explain this? Is she just way more motivated as she can now clean up or is something amiss with the hormone treatment? Normally there is a giant drop in performance.
How do her fellow competitors feel about the competition?
I mean it's kind of laughable right. Last year, she was a very poor athlete on the men's team. Now she's #2 on the NCAA on the women's team.
Update #2: She has won the NCAA II title in the 400h. We've merged two threads into one. LRC's article on her win is here:
