AFL reject transgender player Hannah Mouncey from AFLW draft


Transgender footballer Hannah Mouncey admits she's disappointed by the AFL's decision to rule her ineligible for Wednesday’s AFLW draft but also thanked the league for the way they dealt with her case.
The league’s governing body said in statement that it had convened with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission’s guidelines ‘Trans and gender diverse inclusion is sport – complying with the Equal Opportunity Act 2010’.
The AFL said it had taken into consideration all the available data on transgender strength, stamina, physique along with the specific nature of the AFLW competition.
It has been reported that Mouncey’s testosterone levels were under the levels to compete under IOC regulations but the AFL felt that she may need to undergo more of a transformation in order to compete in the future.
