Transgender male sues for $2.5 million and the right to compete against women at CrossFit Games

A transgender man is suing a strength competition for $2.5 million after CrossFit denied him the right to compete against women.

Chloie Jonnson, who was born male, wants to test his brawn against female athletes in the CrossFit Games, a grueling series of contests designed to find the world’s most fit competitors. When a female rival raised questions about Jonnson being considered a woman, CrossFit said he must compete as a man.
