As reported by Breitbart, Penn State University’s Lia Thomas, a man who identifies as a woman and formerly went by the name Will, broke the record for the 100-meter race at an Ivy League swim meet hosted by Harvard at Boston’s Blodgett Pool. At the same meet, he also won the 200-meter and 500-meter race; he thus became the highest-scoring swimmer at the meet, with 96 points.
Thomas broke other records in the women’s category at the meet, and was part of the winning team in the 400 relay, a pool record. Overall, the Penn State team came in third behind Harvard and Yale.
Thomas’s participation in the women’s team after declaring himself to be “transgender” has sparked controversy, with multiple members of the team complaining about him effortlessly defeating most records that had previously been held by actual, biological women. He has also faced numerous complaints from female teammates over his presence in the locker rooms before and after events, where he repeatedly exposes himself to the women.
He had previously competed for the men’s swim team, where he ranked 462 out of all swimmers nationally; but since “transitioning” to a woman, he is now ranked as the #1 female swimmer in the nation.
