Hubbard left her arrival at the Commonwealth Games to the last minute, arriving after the rest of New Zealand's weightlifting team in order to keep a low profile, refusing any media interviews.

New Zealander Hubbard, 40, led with a 120kg lift after the snatch discipline but had to withdraw with an elbow injury before the clean and jerk.

"But until we have further scanning we won't know the details".

"A man is a man and a woman is a woman and I know a lot of changes have gone through, but in the past Laurel Hubbard used to be a male champion weightlifter", Samoan head coach Jerry Wallwork told the ABC. It was a sad end to the competition for her and a convenient one for all those people who have been watching with incredulity.

A transgender weightlifter's competition ended in injury, but her participation is still a victory for equality.

"It looks like it is going to be a career-ending injury, but I'm glad I'm going out trying to achieve my best on the platform". She previously said: "It would be untrue to say the thought [of a bad reception from the crowd] never crossed my mind".

"The energy remains to be there and I feel it's totally unfair, and for all females it's unfair".

"I have no regrets about the attempts I made because I believe that to be true to sport you really have to try to be the best that you can".

There had been much debate over whether the two-time world silver medalist should have been allowed to participate, with critics claiming an athlete who had previously represented her country as a man had an unfair advantage. Citing a possible ruptured ligament, the 40-year-old athlete withdrew from the women's +90k finals, where she was favorited to win.

"I would just hope that today, that this athlete, we don't detract or take away from how special this moment in time could be for this athlete".

Australian Weightlifting Federation CEO Michael Keelan wrote to the IWF and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in an attempt to have Hubbard banned.

Formerly known as Gavin, Hubbard set national records as a male weightlifter in 1998 before subsequently transitioning, reportedly aged 35. "But there's no indication at all that they were anything other than absolutely fantastic".

In Hubbard's absence, Stowers won the gold with a total of 253, followed by Charisma Amoe-Tarrant of Nauru (243) and Emily Campbell of England (242).

"It's obviously a hard time, but the one thing I'm happiest about is that I tried to reach for my best performance".

Despite this, Hubbard put on another 3kg for a 130kg hoist for her next lift.
