A 22-year old tranny swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania continued his/her dominant performance this season - on the women's swim team - setting numerous pool, meet and program records at a three-day event in Ohio last weekend.
Lia Thomas 'blew away her competition' Friday night in the 500-yard freestyle preliminaries and finals at the Zippy Invitational at the University of Akron, according to results posted by the school. In the finals, Thomas notched a winning time of 4:34.06 - good enough for a new Ivy League record.
The swimmer continued smashing records on Saturday with a nearly 7-second victory in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:41.93 — representing the fastest finish in the country.
Before her 'transition', Thomas competed for two full seasons at Penn as a man. NCAA rules mandate at least one year of testosterone suppression treatment to be eligible to compete as a woman.
