This man, who has had surgery to alter his genitals to mimic a vagina, wants to be considered a woman, and wants to compete against women in a physical competition.

… "The fundamental, ineluctable fact is that a male competitor who has a sex reassignment procedure still has a genetic makeup that confers a physical and physiological advantage over women," Saran wrote in a letter to McCoy that's linked to the discussion board.
