Former Olympian swimmer Sharon Davies has revealed that she is struggling to keep her career as a pundit and a sports ambassador going because she has been relentlessly attacked by trans ‘activists’ for speaking up for women’s rights in sports.
Davies has long been outspoken in her opposition to biological men competing against women in swimming and other sports.

In 2016 she and 60 other influential figures in sports lobbied the International Olympic Committee (IOC), asking the body to reevaluate the rules for allowing biological males to compete against women.
Her stance stems from having been robbed of a gold medal at the 1980 Moscow Olympics by an East German team who doped their female swimmers with testosterone.
In an op-ed for Newsweek, Davies notes that “The East German women had been doped with testosterone and put through male puberty. They looked and sounded like men; they had male physiques, male voices, they even had Adam’s apples.”
