Swimmer Lia Thomas becomes NCAA’s first transgender D-I champion in any sport [Video]

Penn swimmer Lia Thomas won the women’s 500-yard freestyle championship on Thursday to become the first transgender NCAA champion in Division I history.

She finished the race in 4:33.24, beating Virginia’s Emma Weyant by 1.75 seconds. The time fell short of Katie Ledecky’s NCAA-record time of 4:24.06.

Thomas used to compete on the Penn men’s team before transitioning and competing as a woman for the first time this season. Her eligibility has come under scrutiny with critics arguing that she has an unfair advantage in the pool after she went through male puberty. She met NCAA standards to compete as a woman after undergoing testosterone suppression therapy for more than two years.

Since joining the women’s team, Thomas has broken two school records and posted the fastest times in the country in the 200 and 500-yard freestyle events. Now she’s an NCAA champion.

Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio out for season with torn ACL suffered vs. Pelicans [Video]

Ricky Rubio was having a tremendous showing at the Smoothie King Center on Tuesday.

But with just minutes to go, Rubio’s night ended prematurely after his left knee buckled beneath him — which sent the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard crumbling to the ground in pain. By Wednesday afternoon, his season was over.

Rubio was then helped off the court and back
