Martina Navratilova apologizes for transgender ‘cheating’ comments

( CNN) Martina Navratilova may have apologized for using the word “cheating” when describing transgender athletes but the issue received farther attention over the weekend with former UK Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies saying trans females had unjust physical advantages.

While she said she was sorry for “suggesting that transgender athletes in general are cheats” she also added that there was no “perfect solution” to this issue and that if “everyone were included, women’s sports as we know them would cease to exist.”

Navratilova wrote: “I know I don’t have all the answers. I don’t think there is a definitive answer here. That is why I want a debate, a conversation that includes everyone and is based, as I have said , not on feeling or feeling but science, objectivity and the best interests of women’s athletic as a whole.
