Lia Thomas has made history as the first out transgender athlete to win an National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) swimming championship.
She dominated the final 100 yards of the 500-yard freestyle on 18 March, finishing in first place with a season-best time of 4 minutes, 33.24 seconds.
In second place was Virginia’s Emma Weyant with a time of 4:34.99. “I didn’t have a whole lot of expectation for this meet,” Thomas told NBC News. “I was just happy to be here and race and compete the best I could.” She also won the preliminary race with a time of 4:33.82 which, like the official championship, was close until the final 100 yards when Thomas pushed into the lead.
