Video: Just a Top Qualifier? Luca Shaw is In It to Win It
Very impressed by his attitude and approach to life, it will serve him well throughout his life. On a more immediate note, his riding reminds me of Greg Minnaar, deceptively fast due to what appears to be conservative body posturing and movements. No coincidence they're teammates :)

@rockchomper: We're on same page. I'll mention quick that I'm a therapist, and you're correct that the distinction between facts and feelings is critical!!! Also, how we deliver facts and help others address painful facts is really what I'm getting at. The term we use to describe this is gender dysphoria, formerly gender identity disorder, which can be best described as anguish over the pervasive feeling of not being in the right body. It sucks, very painful for those experiencing it! And, from a place of wanting to help many have broken the very immutable rules of the nature to make that person's pain ease. It's a good desire executed very dangerously and lazily. Same mentality behind everybody getting a trophy, as opposed to teaching effort and excellence and the very real vicissitude of life that not everyone can be everything/anything they want no matter how hard they may try.

@rockchomper: Good point, the rub seems to be whether the transgender athletes are happy with that as well. I tend to doubt they would be...the unpleasant aspect is simply setting limits and boundaries. It's always hard to do this, like telling a transgendered female athlete that it's unfair for them to compete as biologically females. My desire is to treat everyone with kindness and fairness, I sincerely don't want to cause another human being pain or to feel isolated and different, and I believe that kindness and fairness don't have to be lost in order for someone to feel included. I fear we error on the other side where we harm many in order not to offend a few, which has been pointed out by others here; what about the female athletes that lose out to transgender athletes?

Life has many unpleasant aspects that don't have simple or easy solutions, this issue is one of them. I grow weary of those that suggest we "move on" or "stop being a bigot" when difficult issues like this pop up. I see it everywhere, and it's again relevant here..."In the future, telling the truth will be a form of revolution" or something tike that. Orwell, it's no longer fiction. I'm stoked for Tracy Hannah, she's really persevered to stay at the top, the Hannah's are a class act!
