The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has announced it will force transgender swimmer Lia Thomas to comply with new rules extending the time trans athletes had to demonstrate lowered testosterone levels.

The move means University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who competed for the men’s team for three years before “identifying” as a woman, can compete in the women’s national championship.

“The subcommittee decided implementing additional changes at this time could have unfair and potentially detrimental impacts on schools and student-athletes intending to compete in 2022 NCAA women’s swimming championships,” the NCAA said in a statement.
