August 3, 2016 — 2015 was a formative year for transgender athletes with Caitlyn Jenner publicly announcing her name change, Chris Mosier becoming the first transgender man to make the U.S. National Team and the IOC adapting more progressive guidelines for the Summer Olympics in Rio. The conversation surrounding transgender athletes has reached a fever pitch and FUSION seeks to explore the answer to the question: do transgender athletes actually have a competitive advantage? Through professional voices and personal storytelling we explore the debate. The half-hour special report includes interviews with Caitlyn Jenner, 1976 Olympic Gold Medalist and Transgender Advocate; Chris Mosier, Team USA Duathlete; Chloe Anderson Division II Collegiate Volleyball Player; Katrina Karkazis, Senior Research Scholar at the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics; among other experts. 'No League of Their Own' premieres Sunday, August 7 @ 10PM on FUSION ( channel listings ). Watch preview here.

'No League of Their Own' was executive produced by Michelle Nash and Julia Saenz with Lacey Uhlemeyer serving as senior producer. Gender Proud was a consulting producer.
