An appeals court in Wisconsin has rejected a lawsuit bought by a boy who claimed the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association discriminated against him by not letting him compete in a girls gymnastics team in the absence of a boys team.
Keith Michael Bukowski filed the case in 2004 citing recent cases where girls had been allowed to compete on boys team in sports such as football and wrestling. The WIAA argued that such a ruling would set a bad precedent for other sports.
Bukowski has since graduated and attend the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The school where he was attending at the time the lawsuit was filed has hired him as assistant coach for the girls' gymnastics team.
