The nation’s introduction to CAITLYN JENNER has erupted into a storm of controversy in the sports world!
Her selection for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award was met with intense criticism. Outraged fans complained about Caitlyn being honored over athletes such as Lauren Hill, 19, who bravely played with her college basketball team before dying of cancer in April.
Earlier this month, the International Olympic Committee was presented an online petition demanding that Caitlyn return her 1976 gold medal.
The National ENQUIRER offers great seats to both sides of the story.
Jennifer Bradford, Petition Founder
“We congratulate Ms. Jenner … and wish her the best. However, she claims she has always believed herself female, and therefore, was in violation of committee rules regarding women competing in men’s sports and vice versa. It is only fair to all involved that men racing Ms. Jenner are not expected to compete with a superior, streamlined being such as herself.”
Bill Price, Sports Editor, New York Daily News
“This petition is absolutely ridiculous!” said the longtime sports writer and editor. “What he did 40 years ago was an incredible accomplishment. Nothing she does now can take away from that.” Bill believes the petition will have no impact on the rights of transgender people in general. “The number of people who find it absurd is far greater than those who give it any merit,” he said.
