Joanna Harper is a research scholar advising the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and a transgender distance runner herself. She said it was possible to make sports fair to all. This story begins more than half a century ago. At that time, a six-year-old child living in a small town in Canada asked a friend if he ever wished he could try being a girl.
