By Kelsey Bolar

The female high school athlete who was forced to sit on the sidelines at a major track tournament because two transgender runners landed the No. 1 and No. 2 spots isn’t just speaking out about the unfairness of her situation—she’s fighting back.

Bolar: OK. We’re going to get more into the backstory of how this happened.
