The International Skating Union has detailed eligibility criteria for transgender athletes looking to take part in its events, following recommendations set out by the International Olympic Committee.

Athletes transitioning from male to female will be unable to change their declaration for at least four years and will have to show their testosterone level in serum has been below a certain level for at least 12 months prior to their first competition.

“This policy is in place for the protection of women in sport and the promotion of the principles of fair competition,” the ISU said, adding its sole desire was to “guarantee fairness and safety within the sport.”
