In a recent Senate Judiciary Committee, the new National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) chief Charlie Baker was questioned about the organization’s policy on transgender athletes. Responding to queries about forcing female athletes to compete against biological males, Baker did not defend past actions and emphasized that current rules are more stringent. His statements, however, did not offer specific details. Meanwhile, Division I swimmer Riley Gaines voiced her concerns about the lack of privacy and unfair competition female athletes face. Despite reaching out to Baker with an invitation to discuss these issues, Gaines has not received any response.
