Teammate Says Trans UPenn Swimmer Lia Thomas is 'Mentally Ill'

A teammate of Lia Thomas, the transgender swimmer who upended college swimming last season, says that Thomas is “mentally ill.”

According to an interview the University of Pennsylvania swimmer anonymously gave to the Washington Examiner, Thomas spent the 2021/22 swimming season refusing to come to terms with the damage he was doing to his “real” female opponents and teammates.

The Examiner interview came on the tail of the appearance that Thomas made on Good Morning America last month, in which the controversial swimmer said he didn’t need “anybody’s permission” to participate as a woman in college swimming.

EXCLUSIVE: “Trans people don’t transition for athletics. We transition to be happy and authentic and our true selves.”
