See the tweet from ESPN reporter Katie Barnes who writes, "The NCAA is adopting new regulations for transgender athlete participation effective immediately per release. The new policy phases out current NCAA guidelines, and adopts those of federations/NGBs/IOC, which vary by sport. Story coming."
I'm stunned by this. To be honest, while I think the NCAA regulations are a joke and think Thomas should not be competing, I'm not sure from a philosophical standpoint that I like them caving to public pressure mid-season. That''s like a bananna republic.
It's certainly a step in coming to the right decision but it's totally done the wrong way . They should have had different rules years ago. The idea that there would be no minimum level of testosterone was absurd.
What are the odds Thomas lawyers up?

PS. Update from Rojo. A poster below has pointed out that the international swimming guidelines don't have an rules on a minimum testosterone level so it's possible this doesn't change much for Thomas.
