American BMX Freestyle contestant Chelsea Wolff, who has been a transgender since childhood, has deleted a Facebook post in which she said she hoped to win an Olympics for burning the US flag on the podium.

“My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn the US flag on the podium,” Wolf wrote at the time. “They’re harming transgender children.” dynamite.”
Yesterday, Woolf said, “Anyone who thinks I don’t care about the United States is deeply mistaken, and one of the reasons I work so hard to represent the United States in international competition is to show the world that this country has morals and values, not just a few things.”
“I take a stand against fascism because I care about this country, and I will not let it fall into the hands of fascists after so many people fought and sacrificed to prevent fascism from taking control abroad,” she added.
Wolff will be the first transgender athlete to represent the United States at the Olympics in Japan, and second only to 43-year-old New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard from New Zealand, who has been cleared by the International Olympic Committee to compete under its guidelines for transient competitors.
