Riley Gaines is a recent graduate from the University of Kentucky where she was a 12x NCAA All-American swimmer.

In 2022, Riley competed and tied with transgender swimmer Lia Thomas at their NCAA championships. Since directly experiencing the injustice of allowing men in women’s sports, Riley has been outspoken on why this issue is blatantly unfair and harmful to females in so many ways.

Because of her resilience in the fight to save women’s sports, Riley was awarded the Clare Boothe Luce Center for Conservative Women’s 2023 Woman of Exceptional Courage Award.
