Webinar: Trans women can’t jump! Briefing on new research from Dr Blair Hamilton

Join LEAP Sports on the 4th of June for a 1-hour webinar with Dr Blair Hamilton on her recently published research on the strength, power and aerobic capacity of transgender athletes.

Dr Blair Hamilton will present an overview and findings from her research and will be joined by Hugh Torrance from LEAP Sports and Deekshitha Ganesan from Transgender Europe (TGEU). In conversation they will discuss findings of the research and consider what they mean in relation to trans people’s participation in sport, and for policymakers in the field.

Webinar is hosted on Zoom on 4th June 14:00-15:00 (BST)

Register here to attend

There will be time for questions as part of the webinar, and we welcome those in advance to ensure we have the time to answer as many as possible.

The research is a cross-sectional study on the strength, power and aerobic capacity of transgender athletes published in British Journal of Sports Medicine by Blair Hamilton et al. The primary purpose of the study was to compare standard laboratory performance metrics of trans athletes to cis athletes. More information about the research as well as access to the full paper can be found here.

We look forward to seeing partners from across the sport sector and any policymakers in this space.
