A transgender swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania has finally been defeated by a Yale University competitor who is also transgender.
Lia Thomas, who is biologically male but identifies as female, has been obliterating records previously held by biologically female athletes, receiving scorn from fellow UPenn swimmers who take issue with Thomas’ presence on the women’s team. It appears, though, the transgender athlete’s skill level has been matched.
Thomas won two races at a tri-meet over the weekend but fell short in the 100 freestyle. Yale swimmer Iszac Henig, a biological female who is transitioning to male, received a time of 49.57 seconds to Thomas’ 52.84 seconds, according to the Daily Mail. — Source: CBN News
