On Sunday, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman named Mary Gregory broke the Masters world records for women’s squat, women’s bench press, and women’s deadlift.
Gregory announced the feat on Instagram, saying, “What a day, 9 for 9! Masters world squat record, open world bench record, masters world dl record, and masters world total record!”
The performance resulted in firm pushback from a number of people, notably former British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies, who fired off a series of tweets:
Gregory started openly identifying as female just one year ago, according to another Instagram post from the power lifter dated April 9.
🔦 The battle over biological males competing in women’s sports rages on. The coming collision between feminist and transgender ideologies creeps closer.
