Contact: 4 Winds USA, 608-469-7956
 
MADISON, Wisc., Oct. 15, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- A transgender won the sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.
 
The winner, Rachel McKinnon is a professor at the College of Charleston. McKinnon represented Canada and beat Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and American cyclist Jennifer Wagner to take home the gold.
 
McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter: "First transgender woman world champion...ever."
 
Steve McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds USA, a ministry standing up for Christian athletes. In 2003, McConkey started fighting the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.
 
From there, the LGBT movement spread rapidly to state high school teams, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, and the military. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.
 
"If you look at the transgender athlete compared to the other women medalists, you see the biological benefits that create more power," states McConkey. "The assault on women will continue. It is discouraging that the other medal winners did not appear to be upset.
 
"We are living in a time where this is acceptable. The groundwork for this is being set every day from the Olympics to elementary schools. The only way to stop this is for Christians to stand up."
