He is allowed to take the testosterone, even though State and UIL rules prohibit their use by high school athletes, because they are "dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical objective".

But even though "state law and UIL rules prohibit steroid use by high school athletes, Beggs" testosterone injections are permissible, however, because of the law's "safe harbor" provision, which allows steroids that are "dispensed, prescribed, delivered, and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical objective, '" the Morning News reported. His steroid therapy treatment while wrestling against girls set off a debate about transgender rights and competitive fairness previous year.

"The birth certificate rule was approved in 2016 by the University Interscholastic League - the governing body for Texas high school sports", Fox News reported.

Texas laws ban performance enhancing drugs for high school athletes, but there is an exception if it is taken for medical purposes.

While he hasn't made an official request, he has said he would prefer to compete against boys if allowed.

"I felt a lot more humble, he said".

"It definitely felt different", Beggs told the Dallas Morning News.

However, last week, Spiegel said that some complaints about the update actually "validate those changes". "I think that's a risk". Wall Street analysts too have begun to notice, citing recent user engagement trends noticed since the platform's redesign.

"I put too much blood, sweat and tears, I put too much B.S. into this journey that I wanted to come out on top", Beggs said.

"Or if you want to do it, you can quit the sport". "This has given her an unfair advantage over her fellow female wrestlers since she first began taking the testosterone to impersonate a male in 2015".

It was done to help schools determine competition, said Jamie Harrison, the UIL's deputy director. State law views his injections as being "dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical goal".

Beggs' mother, Angela McNew told AP: "He has so much respect for all the girls he wrestles. It has more to do with skill and discipline than strength".

Both the NCAA and the Olympics allow athletes to compete in the gender they identify with should Beggs continue his wrestling career. No matter who you put in front of me, I feel like a champion no matter what.

On Twitter, many commentators are saying it is unfair for an athlete who is taking testosterone to be competing in the female competition. "This is what I worked for".
