Including sex transitioned athletes: Worley v. Ontario Cycling Association et al

In recent years, issues arising from transgender and intersex inclusion in sport have attracted a great deal of attention and debate amongst sports governing bodies, athletes, journalists and lawyers. With the International Association of Athletics Federations’ Hyperandrogenism Regulations still suspended and the case before the Court of Arbitration for Sport yet to be decided, Kristen Worley’s human rights application to a provincial-level administrative tribunal in Canada provides some valuable insight into how policies and guidelines directed at sex transitioned athletes may change in future. David Spears, Mario Torres and Jay Kim of Wyllie Spears Labour Lawyers, assess Worley v. Ontario Cycling Association et al, and the recent developments regarding inclusivity in sport.
