Some changed rules concern-for example-the time in which testosterone must be lowered, which increases from 1 to 2 years, and also increases the waiting time after competing in the male category (from 1 to 4 years).

”To compete in the female category in an elite or age-group Triathlon competition, a transgender athlete must prove that the athlete’s serum testosterone concentration has been less than 2.5 Nmol/1 for a period of at least 24 months. Also, 48 months must have elapsed since the transgender athlete competed as a male in any sports competition.”

It also decided to create a particular category for all transgender swimmers.
