(Daily Wire) Twelve-time All-American female swimmer Riley Gaines slammed ESPN for airing a segment promoting a biological male over the weekend in the network’s coverage of “Celebrating Women’s History Month.”

“In 2022, swimmer Lia Thomas became the first transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division I Championship by winning the 500 Freestyle,” the segment said. “The Texas native competed for three seasons on the men’s swim team at the University of Pennsylvania.”


“People will say, ‘Oh, she just transitioned so she would have an advantage so she could win,’” Thomas said in the segment. “I transitioned to be happy.”

Gaines fired back on Twitter, writing: “Lia Thomas is not a brave, courageous woman who EARNED a national title. He is an arrogant, cheat who STOLE a national title from a hardworking, deserving woman.”

“The @ncaa is responsible,” Gaines continued. “If I was a woman working at ESPN, I would walk out. You’re spineless @espn #boycottESPN”


The news comes as the World Athletics Council announced on Thursday that it will not allow transgender athletes to compete against women in female World Rankings competitions.

The move, which goes into effect this week, will ban “male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty.”

“Decisions are always difficult when they involve conflicting needs and rights between different groups, but we continue to take the view that we must maintain fairness for female athletes above all other considerations,” said World Athletics President Sebastian Coe. “We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage which will inevitably develop over the coming years. As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount.”
