Harvard freshman Schuyler Bailar, 19, was recruited to swim on the school’s women’s team. But next season, he’ll swim for the men’s team after his transition, becoming the first openly transgender collegiate swimmer in U.S. history.

The news was first made public in a profile in Swimming World Magazine. It follows Bailer’s own announcement May 10 on Facebook.
