A victory by trans athlete Lia Thomas at an American university swimming competition in March has sparked a furore that's now contributed to the sport's peak international body restricting transgender competitors. This week, FINA effectively banned transgender women from the highest levels of competition, just as the world championships were getting underway in Budapest. While some of Australia's most successful swimmers welcomed the ruling, it was a devastating blow for the transgender community, with other sports signalling they'll follow FINA's lead. Today, Tracey Holmes from ABC Sport on a divisive debate ahead, and what it means for transgender athletes. Featured: Tracey Holmes, ABC Sport senior reporter and host, The Ticket podcast
