Transgender Lia Thomas Wins Women’s 500-Yard Freestyle at NCAA Swimming Championships


America has made a mockery of women’s sports.

Hard-working female athletes now must overcome the added obstacle of competing against biological males in their sport.

And the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships included a biological male winner.

Lia Thomas of Penn won the 500-yard freestyle Thursday night in Atlanta, utilizing a physiological advantage to score the victory.

As witnessed in the NCAA Championships, competitive fairness in women’s sports took a destructive blow.

But Lia Thomas’s dominance at the NCAA Championships will likely continue this weekend.

As Fox News noted, Thomas is slated to compete in the 100-yard and 200-yard freestyle heats:

Women’s rights protesters were furious after trans athlete Lia Thomas was dubbed a women’s NCAA swimming champion on Thursday.

“There’s a man, called Will Thomas, who’s changed his name to Lia Thomas, who is competing in women’s swimming,” Kellie-Jay Keen, head of the organization Standing for Women, said in an interview with Fox News outside the Georgia Tech athletic center where the competition is being held.

“Women aren’t considered full humans,” she continued. “We can’t be – otherwise there wouldn’t be an opportunity for men to compete in women’s sports.”

Thomas, 22, of the University of Pennsylvania, won the 500-yard freestyle at the NCAA women’s swimming and diving championships on Thursday, becoming the first transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division I championship in any sport.

The UPenn athlete is also scheduled to swim in the 200-yard and 100-yard freestyle heats this weekend.

Let’s take a moment to recognize Olympic-medalist Emma Weyant from the University of Virginia, the rightful champion of the women’s 500-yard freestyle.

Outkick commented:

“That’s where [Lia Thomas] really took control of the race,” Gaines, who has been an Olympic swimming analyst since 1996, said during Thursday night’s ESPN coverage. “Emma Weyant did as much as she could to hang in there, and did a spectacular job in getting second,” Gaines added.

Rowdy isn’t lying. In the finals, Weyant swam a 500 free career-best 4:34.99. Thomas went 4:33.24.

Weyant, from Sarasota, isn’t just some random college swimmer. Last summer, she was a Team USA Swimming member who won a silver medal in the 400m individual medley as a 19-year-old.

Thursday night, she was cheated out of her first national championship by Thomas, a biological male.

Another collegiate swimmer spoke about the issue in this interview:

Like this Adidas ad campaign demonstrates, our society continues normalizing failed men’s athletes dominating women’s sports as their Plan B.
