Fox News has picked up on an interview a female swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania did with OutKick in which she described her teammates “upset and crying” knowing they were going to be demolished in competition by Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer “who was second-team All-Ivy league in 2018-19 — as a male.”

Fox News reports:

The second Penn swimmer to come forward was at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational where she watched Lia Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650 freestyle. OutKick’s source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing they were going to be demolished by Thomas.

“They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they’re going to lose. Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they’re going to win and give it all they’ve got,” the source said.

Akron was an absolute beatdown by Thomas, but it wasn’t without disgust from fans who were in the building watching meet, pool, and school records drop one after the other.

“Usually everyone claps, everyone is yelling and cheering when someone wins a race. Lia touched the wall and it was just silent in there,” OutKick’s source said during a phone interview.

Twitter will probably suspend her for that tweet.

We’ve been assured by experts that this wouldn’t be a problem thanks to testosterone blockers and the like.
