IOC announces framework for trans, intersex athletes

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced a new framework for transgender and intersex athletes, dropping controversial policies that required competing athletes to undergo "medically unnecessary" procedures or treatment, NBC News reported.

In a six-page document, the IOC outlined 10 principles, which it described as "grounded on the respect for internationally [recognized] human rights," that sports competitions should follow. It also said it will no longer require athletes to undergo hormone level modifications to compete.

Said principles include inclusion; prevention of harm; non-discrimination; fairness; no presumption of advantage; evidence-based approach; importance of health and bodily autonomy; stakeholder-centered approach; right to privacy; and periodic reviews.

The new framework replaces guidelines the IOC released in 2015, which put a limit on athletes' testosterone levels that required some of them to undergo treatments the IOC now describes as "medically unnecessary." Before 2015, the IOC required athletes to undergo genital surgery.
