World Athletics Council bans transgender track-and-field athletes from international competition
The group adopted the same rules as swimming did last year
The World Athletics Council on Thursday banned transgender athletes from international track-and-field competition.
In two decisions, the group adopted the same rules as swimming did last year in deciding to bar athletes who have transitioned from male to female and have gone through male puberty, according to the Associated Press.
No such athletes currently compete at the highest elite levels of track.
