U of Penn’s Best Swimmer on Women’s Swim Team Is a Man

The University of Pennsylvania put a man on the women’s swim team and he’s winning the meets, breaking records, and proving he can beat women.

That’s just great.

“Lia” Thomas, who spent November racking up first-place finishes and setting records, swam for Penn as Will Thomas for three years. After taking the 2020-21 season off, the biological man said he’s transgender and returned to compete with women.

She told Penn Today, “Being trans has not affected my ability to do this sport, and being able to continue is very rewarding.” [No doubt, so much easier to win.]

On Nov. 5th, Thomas won the 200-meter freestyle and 100-meter freestyle in a meet against Columbia, according to SwimSwam.com.

The biological man contributed three first-place finishes and a second, winning the 200 free (1:46.92) and the 100 free (50.35) and contributing to the winning 200 medley relay (22.76 anchor) and runner-up 200 free relay (22.74 anchor).

On November 20th, Thomas blasted the number one 200 free time and the second-fastest 500 free time in the nation, breaking Penn program records in both events. Thomas swept the 100-200-500 free individual events and contributed to the first-place 400 free relay in a tri-meet against Princeton and Cornell in her home pool. Penn split for the day, beating Cornell 219 to 81 but losing to Princeton, 106 to 194, SwimSwam wrote.

This is ridiculous. She’s a man. It’s very unfair to women and deprives them of their rightful wins.
