What you seem to suggesting here is a trans athlete who has not had any surgery or treatments. i.e. they are a man, identifying as a woman and competing against women.

If that is what you mean then I don't see how a woman could compete by any metric. Men are faster, stronger with greater accuracy and skill. The data is in on that one.

That doesn't happen at the moment although it may be that cases currently under review could set a new a precedent.
