Andraya Yearwood : Outrage as Nigerian transgender excels in the girl’s state championship – See Pictures
A Connecticut high school sophomore dominated in last week’s track and field competition – but the transgender teen’s big win has some people outraged and wondering if it’s fair she was allowed to compete. .
Nigerian Andraya Yearwood dominated at the competition, finishing in second place in the 100-meter dash, as another transgender came first. Last year, Yearwood came in first in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes.
She competed in the races last year before undergoing hormone treatments.
It’s not clear if she underwent treatments before competing in this year’s competition. .
Some of the girls’ competitors were angry they were allowed to compete on the women’s team. Many have now signed a petition calling for for the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference to change its rule.
Andraya was born at 24 weeks to a Nigerian mom identified as Ngozi Nnaji. In February, Andraya and her mom made the trip to a government office to submit paperwork for Andraya to legally change her name. .
She is the only one of Ngozi’s children not to have a Nigerian first name, but she kept her birth name as a middle name. The journey has been difficult, but Ngozi loveS her daughter.
