Yale Trans Swimmer Beats Penn Trans Rival in Women’s Ivy League Race

Yale trans swimmer beats Penn trans rival in women's Ivy League race

Penn transgender swimmer Lia Thomas was considered unbeatable by many in women’s swimming, mainly because the now-female athlete has spent three years swimming as a biological male. However, the unrivaled Thomas met her match on Saturday at an Ivy League 100-meter freestyle with Yale and Dartmouth.

According to OutKick, Thomas won the 200-meter and 500-meter races at Penn’s final home meet of the season, but she finished sixth in the 100-meter to Yale’s own Isaac Henig, a female-to-male transgender swimmer who crushed Thomas.

Henig finished the 100-meter race in 49.57 to trailing Thomas’ 52.84. Thomas’ defeat didn’t end there. In the 400-freestyle relay, Henig defeated Thomas again after swimming in 50.45 to Thomas’ 51.94.
