(LONDON) Transgender Sport Report: A comprehensive U.K report into transgender participation in sport determined Thursday trans men who identify as women retain distinct physiological advantages when competing in female categories, even if they suppress testosterone levels #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.02: Such is the competitive advantage the report urges consideration be given to adopting “universal” or “open” categories in order to protect female-only competition, while allowing transgender participation after concluding men who identify as women do retain physique, stamina and strength advantages.

#AceDailyNews says according to the report that followed the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this summer where transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard made history by competing in the women’s +87kg weightlifting: Hubbard became the first openly transgender athlete to compete at a Games in a different gender category to the one in which they were born.

Hubbard ultimately failed to record a single successful lift in the women’s +87kg weightlifting, crashing out of the competition in the process.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the study from UK Sport, Sport England, Sport Wales, Sport Scotland and Sport Northern Ireland states testosterone suppression does little to dilute the physical advantages of trans women in female sport.

As a result, say the sports councils, it is not possible to guarantee safety and competitive fairness in some activities. The report outlines:

Long-term evidence indicates that males have numerous physical advantages in sport compared with females, and this is recognised in law….

Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.

The long-awaited document is based on interviews with 300 people and 175 organisations and took 18 months to compile.

It attempts to bring clarity to a vexed area for competitors and administrators alike.Matt Perdie

The guidance covers community activities up to national level, and does not apply to international, professional or elite level competition.

It noted different criteria may be applicable depending on the sport, and the focus could vary between inclusion, competitive fairness and safety.

That advice directly opposes those administrations seeking to ban transgender participation outright.

Four states are in the process of advancing laws that would ban transgender student-athletes from competing in the categories they “identify” with, according to reports. https://t.co/wYgOPuBqwb

“Sport must be a place where everyone can be themselves, where everyone can take part and where everyone is treated with kindness, dignity and respect,” the report added.

Earlier this year U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona backed biological men who say they are “transgender women” to compete against biological women, as Breitbart News reported.

Cardona spoke with ESPN about the issue, which has caused 33 states as of April 2021 to craft legislation to protect women from unfair competition based on the federal statute Title IX, which prohibits discrimination against women based on their biological sex.

(SCOTLAND) #Coronavirus Report: Scotland V England Match is being linked to rise in cases with almost 1,300 testing positive in Scotland according to PHS #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – July.01: Minister tells England fans not to travel to Italy for Euro quarter-finals: Roughly 400 of these fans were at Wembley to see the game, while the others watched from elsewhere in the English capital.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk#COVID19 Scotland game in London linked to rise in cases as Downing Street warns England fans against Rome trip as they have to self-isolate for 5-days meaning they will miss the match with almost 1,300 people in Scotland tested positive for coronavirus after travelling to London to watch a Euro 2020 match, Public Health Scotland (PHS) has confirmed according to the Independent today….

Follow the latest updates

Fans have been urged not to travel to Italy to watch England’s Euro 2020 quarter final clash with Ukraine as coronavirus restrictions mean those who were lucky in the ballot cannot use their tickets.

The side’s landmark 2-0 defeat of Germany set up the clash in Rome but rules in Italy for arrivals from the UK mean fans would face five days of quarantine, which would see them miss the match this Saturday.

The FA was entitled to an allocation of 2,560, equating to 16 per cent of the agreed capacity of 16,000 at the Stadio Olimpico, but will not take this up, meaning those tickets will go on general sale.

It added it was working with Uefa and the British Embassy in Italy to “facilitate” ticket sales to English residents in Italy, which is also on the UK’s amber list requiring self-isolation for 10 days upon return.1625062939

Downing Street urges England fans not to travel to Rome 

Downing Street has urged fans not to travel to Rome for England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final tie with Ukraine on Saturday.

The prime minister’s official spokesman said: “People should not be travelling to amber list countries.

“Obviously we appreciate how fans will want to do everything possible to support the England team but we do need to balance that against the need to protect public health.

“We would urge everyone to comply with the guidelines and rules that we have in place.”

Long Covid cases under-reported in NHS GP records, study finds

Cases of Long Covid are under reported in NHS GP records, researchers have found.

Through analysing the GP records of 57.9 million patients in England, they found formally recorded diagnoses of Long Covid are substantially lower than previous survey estimates.

The researchers say the results raise important questions about how the disease is diagnosed, recorded and managed by the NHS.

NHS prepared for spike in admissions of Covid patients to intensive care, says Downing Street

Downing Street has said the NHS is prepared for an increase in admissions of coronavirus patients to intensive care.

New figures show the number of Covid-19 patients on ventilators in England’s hospitals has climbed to its highest level for more than two months.

The prime minister’s official spokesman said the increase had been anticipated and that the country remained in a “good position” to continue with the lifting of lockdown restrictions later this month.

“We have put in a number of additional measures, not least additional ventilators, so we are prepared for this,” the spokesman said.

“As we have said all along, we know cases will rise, sadly we know that will lead to an increase in hospitalisations and whilst the increase has not been as significant as in the past we have seen numbers increase.

“We are aware of the huge challenge this pandemic continues to pose to the country but it is thanks to the significant defences that we have built up through our vaccination programme that we have been able to be one of the most unlocked countries in Europe and in a good position still to take a further step later this month.”

Scotland records three more coronavirus deaths

Scotland has recorded three coronavirus deaths and 3,887 cases in the past 24 hours, the latest Scottish government figures show.

It means the death toll under this daily measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – stands at 7,716.

The daily test positivity rate is 9.8 per cent, down from 11.6 per cent the previous day.

A total of 235 people were in hospital on Monday with recently confirmed Covid-19, up 20, with 19 patients in intensive care, down one.

So far, 3,799,467 people have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccination and 2,712,237 have received their second dose.

Education secretary says he wants to end regular Covid testing for schoolchildren ‘at earliest and most realistic possible stage’

The education secretary, Gavin Williamson, has told MPs he wants to end regular Covid-19 testing for schoolchildren “at the earliest and most realistic possible stage”.

Conservative former chief whip Mark Harper, who chairs the lockdown sceptic Covid Recovery Group, said: “He’s clearly I think indicating where he wants to go on getting rid of bubbles. I’m not really sure though why we can’t do it now because we’re then going to cause a huge problem for the rest of term, we’re not going to give a lot of time for teachers and schools to prepare for the autumn.”

On testing, Mr Harper said: “Given we’ve now vaccinated all of those adults at risk of being seriously ill from Covid, is he really suggesting – given that Covid is going to be endemic – that for the rest of time we’re going to be testing our schoolchildren on a regular basis?

“I think we need to move back to normal. Once we’ve protected everyone who is vulnerable to Covid – children are not largely – we need to get back to normal, not ensuring that our children have to be continually tested for the entirety of their school careers.”

Mr Williamson replied: “We do want to see schools return to normality and we don’t want children to feel as if there’s an extra layer of things that they have to do that we as adults don’t have to do and I think that is very important.”

He said testing has been an “incredibly important tool” in helping schools return and the issue is “under review”, adding: “Much longer-term do I see testing as something that we expect children to continuously do always in the future? No I don’t, and I ideally want to move away from that at the earliest and most realistic possible stage.”

Official Covid-19 symptoms list may miss ‘many cases’, experts warn

The official list of Covid-19 symptoms should be expanded as the existing one could “miss many Covid-19 cases”, experts have argued.

The UK should follow other countries and include a broader range of symptoms that have been linked to a Covid-19 infection, according to a group of scientists, including one of the experts advising the Government on the pandemic response.

Classic symptoms of Covid-19, according to the NHS website, are a high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change to a person’s sense of smell or taste.

But the most commonly reported symptoms by people taking part in the Office for National Statistics Covid-19 Infection Survey are cough, headache and fatigue.

The latest ONS release shows 61 per cent of people who tested positive reported symptoms.

Of these, 42 per cent had a cough, 39 per cent reported headache and 38 per cent reported fatigue, according to the ONS.

Muscle ache was reported by a quarter of people and 32 per cent reported having a sore throat.

Meanwhile a third reported fever and 21 per cent reported loss of smell and 15 per cent reported loss of taste.

Covid patients on ventilators at highest level for more than two months

The number of Covid-19 patients on ventilators in England’s hospitals has climbed to its highest level for more than two months, new figures show.

Analysis by the PA news agency shows that the average number of patients in hospitals in England is also climbing, with younger people driving the rise.

The average number of patients with Covid-19 in England in mechanical ventilation beds stood at 245 on June 29, according to the NHS England figures.

This is up from 206 a week earlier and is the highest since April 24, having dipped as low as 113 on May 29.

The number is still far below the peak of the second wave, when the average hit a high of 3,676 on January 26.

But the trend suggests there is still enough of a link between Covid-19 infection and hospital admissions to result in a growing number of people needing intensive treatment.

Government resists Tory MPs’ calls to scrap ‘fearful’ daily Covid figures

Boris Johnson’s government has resisted calls from Conservative backbenchers to stop releasing daily Covid-19 figures, amid concern that regular statistics create a “fear factor”.

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said daily updates on case numbers, hospitalisations and deaths made people “irrational” – calling on the government to “stop it now”.

(LONDON) ESL Sports Report: All six Premier League teams involved in the European Super League (ESL) have now withdrawn from the competition after fans protested and clubs saw that they would lose money #AceSportsDesk report

#AceSportsReport – Apr.21: BBC Sport understands bosses at the Serie A club are preparing for their exit following Tuesday night’s dramatic developments.

European Super League: All six Premier League teams withdraw from competition: Manchester City were the first club to pull out after Chelsea had signalled their intent to do so by preparing documentation to withdraw: The other four sides – Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – have all now followed suit: Italian side Inter Milan are also set to withdraw as they no longer wish to be involved with the project: How football’s volatile 48 hours unfolded

The 12-team Super League, set up by the seven afore-mentioned teams and Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid and Italy’s AC Milan and Juventus was announced on Sunday to widespread condemnation.

“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure put on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations,” the ESL said on Wednesday, adding it was “convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change”.

In an interview with Italian newspaper la Repubblica, Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli said the remaining clubs will “press ahead” and the project still had “a 100% chance of being a success”.,

“Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is insisting on the idea of keeping the group together to push for change,” says Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.Liverpool owner John W Henry apologises in message to fans

“Barcelona say they agreed to the ESL, but only if the Season Ticket Holders Assembly approve it, which could be their way out.”

Balague also says Atletico Madrid are meeting on Wednesday morning to review their position.

Manchester City confirmed they have “formally enacted the procedures to withdraw” from the Super League.

Liverpool said their involvement in the proposed breakaway league “has been discontinued”.

Manchester United said they had “listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders” in making their decision to not take part.

Arsenal apologised in an open letter to their fans and said they had “made a mistake”, adding they were withdrawing after listening to them and the “wider football community”.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said the club regretted the “anxiety and upset” caused by the proposal.

Chelsea confirmed they have “begun the formal procedures for withdrawal from the group” that they only joined “late last week”.

‘Admirable to admit a mistake ‘ – Uefa 

Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin welcomed the reversal, adding: “I said yesterday that it is admirable to admit a mistake and these clubs made a big mistake.

“But they are back in the fold now and I know they have a lot to offer not just to our competitions but to the whole of the European game.

“The important thing now is that we move on, rebuild the unity that the game enjoyed before this and move forward together.”

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson posted on Twitter: “I welcome last night’s announcement. This is the right result for football fans, clubs, and communities across the country. We must continue to protect our cherished national game.”

Labour leader Keir Starmer added that this “must be a watershed moment, where we change our game to put fans first again”, while Liberal Democrats leader Ed Davey tweeted: “This must be the start of a fans-led football revolution.”

In a statement, the European Super League said: “Given the current circumstances we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.”

English football’s ‘big six’ were part of a group that announced plans to form the breakaway league, which they hoped to establish as a new midweek competition.

It was condemned by fans, football authorities and government ministers in the UK and across Europe by Uefa and league associations.

Around 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge ground before their game against Brighton on Tuesday to protest at their club’s involvement.Chelsea legend Petr Cech pleaded with fans to disperse outside the ground before their match against Brighton

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, who was involved in the Super League discussions, has announced he will step down from his role at the end of 2021.

Leading players at some of the six clubs signalled their disapproval of the planned breakaway league.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said on social media his side’s “collective position” is they do not want the Super League to take place.

“We don’t like it and we don’t want it to happen,” read a message that was also posted by many fellow Liverpool players.

After City confirmed their withdrawal, England winger Raheem Sterling posted: “Ok bye.”

Uefa had hoped to stave off the threat of a European Super League with a new 36-team Champions League, which was agreed on Monday.

In announcing their proposals for a Super League that would eventually comprise of 20 teams, the 12-club group said the Champions League reforms did not go far enough.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who was named as the ESL’s chairman, said the competition was set up “to save football” because young people are “no longer interested” in the game because of “a lot of poor quality games”.

None of the Spanish and Italian sides have yet released a statement after the six Premier League teams pulled out.

What did each club say?

The Arsenal board said they did not intend to “cause such distress” and that they joined the Super League because they “did not want to be left behind” and wanted to ensure the club’s future.

“Our aim is always to make the right decisions for this great football club, to protect it for the future and to take us forward,” they added.

“We didn’t make the right decision here, which we fully accept.”

Manchester United said that they “remain committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game”.

Liverpool said the club had “received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally” before reaching their decision and thanked them for their “valuable contributions”.

Levy said that Tottenham felt it was “important” to take part in “a possible new structure that sought to better ensure financial fair play and financial sustainability whilst delivering significantly increased support for the wider football pyramid”.

He added: “We should like to thank all those supporters who presented their considered opinions.”

Chelsea said that after having had “time to consider the matter fully” they had decided that their “continued participation in these plans would not be in the best interests of the club, our supporters or the wider football community”.

Manchester City said they have “formally enacted the procedures to withdraw from the group developing plans for a European Super League”
