A transgender runner will not be allowed to compete in the U.S. Olympic trials after not meeting hormone eligibility qualifications for some women’s events. 

CeCe Telfer will not compete in the women’s 400-meter hurdles at the U.S. Olympic trials due to guidelines released by World Athletics, which sets requirements to be eligible for the Olympic games, The Associated Press reported.

The organization in 2019 closed international women’s events between 400 meters and a mile to athletes who do not meet specific requirements, one of which is that an athlete’s testosterone levels must be below 5 nanomoles per liter for at least a year.
