Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared Emma Weyant as the rightful winner of the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s 500-yard Freestyle after biological male Lia Thomas won the race.

“By allowing men to compete in women’s sports, the NCAA is destroying opportunities for women, making a mockery of its championships and perpetuating a fraud,” DeSantis said. “In Florida, we reject these lies and recognize Sarasota’s Emma Weyant as the best women’s swimmer in the 500-yard freestyle.”
