Penn transgender swimmer Lia Thomas wins 2nd Ivy title


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — University of Pennsylvania transgender athlete Lia Thomas continued her strong showing at the Ivy League swimming championships, setting more records while claiming her second title two days. Thomas won the 200-meter freestyle final in a pool- and meet-record time of 1 minute, 43.12 seconds,, eclipsing the marks set by Harvard’s Miki Dahlke in 2018 and 2020. Thomas entered the championship with the top time in the nation this year in the 200 freestyle. Her victory was closer than her win in the 500 freestyle in which she set a pool record in a time of 4:37.32. But it sets her up to leave unbeaten in individual competition this week.
