Channeling King Solomon there - from the London Daily Mail:

Lia Thomas and other transgender athletes are banned by world swimming's governing body FINA from competing against women: Separate 'open category' will be set up

    • FINA, world swimming's governing body, adopted a new policy to prohibit transgender women from competing in women's races
    • Under the new rules a transgender women can only compete in women's races if they have completed their transition by age 12
    • They will then have to prove that they are continuously suppressing their testosterone levels
    • A separate open category will be created for swimming competitions in future
    • The decision came after the International Olympic Committee left it up to individual sports federations to develop rules about transgender athletes
    • A task force concluded that biological women 'cannot compete' against anyone who went through male puberty who will have higher testosterone levels
    • The rule will prevent Lia Thomas from competing against women in international events leading up to the Olympics

There 'ya go.  Puberty is when the body starts differentiating so is an excellent demarcation point.  Very good call.
