Virginia Representative Ren Williams has called on the University of Pennsylvania to surrender to the Women’s National Swimming Championship, claimed by biological man Leah Thomas. Williams said Emma Wayant of the University of Virginia, a biological woman who finished second behind Thomas in the championship race, is a true national champion and both schools should take a stand to save women’s sports.
The world of women’s swimming has been the subject of controversy lately, as biological man Leah Thomas has been allowed by the NCAA to compete as a woman at the University of Pennsylvania. Thomas initially competed for the school as a man named Will, nowhere near the national championship before declaring femininity and going for a swim against a female opponent. At the recent national championships, Thomas became the “first trans woman” to win an NCAA championship, taking first place in the women’s 500-yard freestyle. “He’s a man!” Bush reigned supreme among the spectators, shouting.
Second behind Thomas is Emma Wyant of the University of Virginia, who is just a freshman but has already won a silver medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics competing against other biological women. Many of his fellow swimmers and sports fans are already calling Wyant the 2022 National Champion and now Rep. Ren Williams (R-9) wants to make it official, urging both schools to take steps to save women’s sports.
“Freshman Emma Wayant swam an incredible race at the Division One National Championships. He was the exact winner of the five-hundred-yard freestyle. But the title of Emma’s hard-fought, career-building has been stolen by a biological man, “said Williams, a former Trump election attorney-representative, in a press release.
“I urge the University of Pennsylvania and Leah Thomas to surrender their stolen titles, and to the University of Virginia, to stand up for women and girls everywhere,” Williams continued. That means declaring Emma Wayant the right winner. “
Williams called on the left for their public attack on women’s sports, calling it a “complete hoax” and saying “the extreme left is cheering biological men because they steal women’s trophies and ridicule their efforts.”
“It’s a shame and nobody should stand up for it,” Williams said of the situation, noting that he hopes Emma Wayant is “welcoming champions” to UVA.
Although both schools operate in a way that can only be described as a leftist environment, at the grassroots level, men’s opposition to women’s sports has grown. 16 UPENN female swimmers wrote a letter to school and Ivy League officials earlier this year protesting Thomas’ biological benefits to women, and several Olympians and other high-profile individuals have spoken out.
Florida Gov. Ron Desantis, the governor of Weyant’s home state, signed a proclamation this week declaring him the true national champion.
