Transgender sprinter sparks outrage after changing gender from male to female and smashing 300m record at Rochester Institute of Technology: Riley Gaines slams unfair victories

A transgender athlete sparked backlash after smashing the 300m women’s track record at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Sadie Schreiner, formerly known as Camden, stormed to victory at a college track and field meet on December 8 at Nazareth University in New York, setting the new record with a time of 41.80 seconds.

Schreiner reportedly competed at the same meet a year ago in the men’s category of the 100m, where she came home in 19th place.

Women’s sports activist Riley Gaines, a former standout college swimmer who spoke out against transgender athletes after competing against controversial NCAA champion Lia Thomas, condemned the victory as it was ‘set by a male.’

‘This happens a lot for something that never happens,’ she said on X.

Schreiner’s win is only the latest incidence of a growing number of transgender athletes finding success in women’s sports, as experts warn they hold an unfair physical advantage due to the effects of male puberty. Schreiner’s record braking efforts this month sparked fury among those who say she holds an unfair advantage over biological females, with her 300m time equivalent to only 41st place in the men’s category.

After Gaines shared her disapproval at the victory, journalist Cindy Hoedel added that the mounting wins by transgender athletes is ‘making a mockery of women’s sports.’

‘Women will have to spend years getting these men’s times stripped. The women who won will eventually be acknowledged in record books but will never get back the stolen experience of standing atop the podium.’

Gaines has been a vocal opponent of transgender inclusion in women’s sports, and testified before Congress this month as lawmakers consider changing Title IX regulations to support transgender inclusion.

There are numerous documented instances of males competing not just in women’s swimming, but also in women’s track, cross country, basketball, volleyball, field hockey, and other sports at all levels of competition,’ Gaines said.
