Transgender college swimmer who swam as a man for 3 years now crushing the competition at women’s meets

After three years of competing as a male, a transgender swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania switched to competing as a female and is now dominating the competition, the Daily Wire reported this week.

What are the details?

Senior swimmer Lia Thomas, formerly known as Will Thomas, reportedly broke multiple school and conference records during a Nov. 20 swim meet against Cornell University and Princeton University.

According to SwimSwam, Thomas “blasted the number one 200 free time and the second-fastest 500 free time in the nation on Saturday, breaking Penn program records in both events.” The swimming blog later noted that Thomas’s times in both races marked new Ivy League records, as well.

Thomas also reportedly “swept the 100-200-500 free individual events and contributed to” Penn’s first-place finish in the 400-meter freestyle relay. Thomas’s time in the 200-meter free was “only half a second off the NCAA A cut” and was “the second-fastest women’s 200 free time in the nation so far this season,” the blog added.

Earlier in the month, Thomas reportedly “took home a pair of gold medals in the 200 free and 100 free with margins of 5.4 seconds and 1.3 seconds” in a meet against Columbia University.
