Rio2016 – Transgender athletes to be allowed to compete as the other sex in the Olympic without having gender reassignment surgery

Waiting is over for (2016 Summer Olympics) Rio2016 officially known as the Games of the XXXI Olympiad. This is held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Two days before opening rounds in certain events began on 3 August 2016. Rio 2016 is formally run from 5 August to 21 August 2016. Different countries are taking part in this Olympic but Kosovo and South Sudan are new entering country in it. This Olympics contains 306 sets of medals and 28 Olympic sports. Rio de Janeiro was selected as a host country by the IOC Executive Board on 4 June, 2008 with three of the six other Applicant cities—Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo; over Baku, Doha and Prague—becoming a Candidate city during the 2008 Sport Accord Convention in Athens, Greece. Rio de Janeiro was shortlisted receiving a 6.4 score, according to a study of its Application File delivered to the IOC Working Group on January 14, 2008.
New Policy
The Olympics are adopting a new policy. According to this new policy, now transgender athletes can also take participate. The International Olympic Committee received proposed guidelines in November from its ‘Consensus Meeting on Sex Reassignment and Hyperandrogenism’, which allow for broader policies that would include transgender athletes.Olympic officials have not confirmed the new guidelines, which have already been adopted by other regulatory sports organizations, but the policy is available on the organization’s website. This policy change would be in line with NCAA standards in the United States, which allow male-to-female and female-to-male transgender athletes to compete without having gender reassignment surgery, according to ESPN. The current Olympic rules acknowledge transgender athletes’ right to compete, but with specific provisions under the Stockholm Consensus, which was adopted in 2004.The policies, adopted before the Athens Olympics, say transgender athletes have to have gender reassignment surgery and have legal recognition of the gender they were assigned at birth. They also have to have undergone at least two years of hormone replacement therapy after surgery. The proposed new rules would allow transgender athletes to compete after one year of hormone replacement therapy and no surgery is required.
