Very few athletes in recent history have provoked as much outrage as New Zealand's Laurel Hubbard. In Tokyo, the weightlifter will become the first out transgender athlete to compete in the Olympic Games, although not everyone agrees she should. Her inclusion in the Games is a big step for the trans community, but trans people's access to sport at all levels is still a long way from being guaranteed.

Featured: Tracey Holmes, sports reporter, ABC Chelsea Wolfe, BMX rider, Team USA 2021 & trans woman Grace McKenzie, rugby player & trans woman
