Brava!! Especially to Kirsten.

teawamutu Wed 16-Oct-19 07:43:04

Yes, congratulations. Hope you get your actual medal one day, Kirsten.

Congratulations on your achievements, to the women!
And to Rachel McKinnon, I hope your 'victory' feels as hollow and worthless as we all know it to be.

Yep well done those WOMEN!

Was this billed as a Womens race or mixed sex?

SarahTancredi Wed 16-Oct-19 08:04:24

Well done dawn naomi and Kirsten!!

Beansandcoffee Wed 16-Oct-19 08:05:08

It is a women’s race.

frazzled1 Wed 16-Oct-19 08:10:10

It should be a women's race for actual women. Not fair to have an XY competitor.

Forgot pic...

BuzzShitbagBobbly Wed 16-Oct-19 08:18:28

Dawn and Noami's body language is more than clear....

It was listed as the "Female 35-39". FEMALE. FFS.

SarahTancredi Wed 16-Oct-19 08:20:09

I thought that buzz

They arent even acknowledging one person is there. Theres a "dont touch me" look behind that smile

drum123 Wed 16-Oct-19 08:31:57

Well done to all the WOMEN. The XX ones.

drum123 Wed 16-Oct-19 08:35:58

Great comments on the Facebook page.

Congratulations!!!

Gold: Dawn Orwick (36.901)
Silver: Naomi Lovesay (37.842)
Bronze: Kirsten Herup Sovang (38.709)

We should collect the prize money and get a medal for Kirsten.

RM ain't no female. Even the mantra goes TWAW.

Going by what happened at the recent World Swimming Champs, the medallists are under strict instructions not to make any protests or statements on the podium on pain of disqualification and sanction.

Not on the podium but they sure made political statements and announced they were going to do so in advance.

Well done to those awesome women.

Heart goes out to the real bronze medal winner. Fuck.

BuzzShitbagBobbly Wed 16-Oct-19 08:52:03

Watch a bunch of amazing female cyclists. And one other.
And note the "live chat" panel on the right.

I love the last post on that tweet - about ultrathon's and women being better at them than men. Yes, tis something to do with our specific female physiology , fat content etc.

It's always physiology ... sex based and just occasionally being a woman has it's sporting advantages, But just look how far (literally) you have to go to find that occasion! How sodding extreme!

Pshaw!

emerencemaybehopeful Wed 16-Oct-19 08:53:28

Can't see the twitter feed - apparently I'm blocked. Hooray! I'm taking it as a sign I've done something right.

Congratulations the three women: Dawn, Naomi and Kirsten. We celebrate your prowess flowers
