CrossFit

SLAMS TRANSGENDER ATHLETE

Face It, You're Not a Winner

0516_Chloie-Jonsson_crossfit_facebookThe post-op transgender suing CrossFit is no champion -- penis or no penis -- so says the fitness titans who claim the woman (born a man) actually competed with the gals in 2013 ... AND LOST. 

It's the latest twist in the legal war between C.F. and Chloie Jonsson -- who's suing CrossFit for $2.5 million claiming they violated her civil rights by not letting her compete with the ladies, once they learned that she was born a man. 

But CrossFit says Chloie's full of crap -- explaining that she actually DID compete with the women in 2013 ... until she blew the whistle on herself. 

In new legal docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, CrossFit says it never suspected Jonsson was born a man ... but once she raised the issue, they couldn't allow her to continue to compete with the women, per the organizations own rules.

As we previously reported, CrossFit says there's strong scientific evidence that shows naturally-born men have a physical advantage of naturally-born females. 

Still, CrossFit says it doesn't even matter ... because when Chloie competed in an open competition for the 2013 CrossFit games, her scores were so poor, she wouldn't have advanced to the next round ... male or female.

The drama continues. Stay tuned ...

He is not a woman and needs to accept it... I hope he sues CrossFit just so he loses and all these politically correct delusional loons can be confronted with the obvious scientific evidence proving them wrong

So people have opinions and they wish to share them, and people have bitterness, anger, resentment and as comments below show, display such an acute state of immaturity that giving an opinion gives way to giving out gas...straight out the ass.

So lets say they let him compete with women and he won and then went and had a dong put back on. Would he give back the winnings?

Actually you dumb**** people.. Cross fit is completely wrong! A post op transgender woman has no testosterone left, accept what's in her adrenal glands. Since she had surgery, she is not that strong. Now a natural born female has testosterone in her ovaries and adrenal glands. So, a natural born woman can be stronger because of testosterone then a post op transgender woman. Cross fit needs to get their facts right and stop living behind the times like most people do! Idk why im even commenting! Most of you idiots on here sound immature as allll hell! Well, that's kind of expecting coming from tmz viewers.
