Olympian Caitlyn Jenner came out in support of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ statement recognizes Sarasota native Emma Weyant, an Olympian, as the real winner at the NCAA swimming championships where she came in second place to biological male University of Pennsylvania swimmer William “Lia” Thomas.

As Townhall covered, DeSantis shared the statement recognizing Weyant as the winner of the 500-yard freestyle via Twitter on Tuesday.

“On Thursday, March 17, 2022, Emma Weyant competed in the 500-yard freestyle race at the Division 1 Women’s and Diving Championships, logging the fastest time among all women swimmers,” the statement read. “A male identifying as a woman was allowed to compete in and was declared the winner of the race by the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and Emma was determined to have come in second place.”
