Star swimmer Riley Gaines assaulted by mob of activists, security jumps into action

Star collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines was at a speaking event and she was ambushed and attacked by activists. She wrote in a tweet, "The prisoners are running the asylum at SFSU...I was ambushed and physically hit twice by a man. This is proof that women need sex-protected spaces. Still only further assures me I'm doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder."

Gaines shared video of what happened as it prompted security or police to spring into action and get her away from the wild mob of people chanting incorrect things towards her.  WKYT reported on the incident as well. Their news report said:

Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines says she was attacked Thursday evening during a speaking event at San Francisco State University.

Since her time at UK, Gaines has openly criticized transgender athletes competing in women’s sports. Gaines says she lost a fifth-place trophy to a transgender female swimmer during the swimming national championships.

Since speaking out, Gaines has become a spokeswoman with the Independent Women’s Forum.

That group condemned the attack, alleging Gaines was violently accosted, ambushed and physically assaulted during a speech on sex discrimination women face in their own single-sex sports category.

We reached out to San Francisco State University to learn more about the incident. The university’s police department says it is investigating the situation... and there were no arrests related to the event.

The statement goes on to say, “The disruption occurred after the conclusion of the event which made it necessary for UPD officers to move the event speaker from the room to a different, safe location.”
