Former Olympian tells 'America Reports' the NCAA only 'kicked the can down the road' with its new policy.

Parents and women’s sports advocates are slamming the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for "passing the buck" on its transgender student-athlete policy after the organization announced a change Wednesday on testosterone requirements.

The NCAA Board of Governors voted in support of a sport-by-sport approach to transgender participation, which aligns with recent policy changes from the U.S. and International Olympic Committees and allows each sport’s national governing body to determine its own policy. The NCAA policy previously required trans women athletes to undergo at least a year of testosterone suppression treatment before competing on a women’s team.

If a sport does not have a national governing body, that sport’s international federation policy would be followed. If there is no international federation policy, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) rules would take place.
