“A man still trying to keep his job” – Riley Gaines hits back at Keith Olbermann showing off her swimming medals
Riley Gaines addressed Keith Olbermann’s recent comments in her Thursday tweet.

Olbermann had criticized Gaines’ swimming abilities and accused her of damaging her reputation by suing the NCAA over its policy regarding transwomen in women’s sports. Olbermann had labelled her lawsuit as “transphobic” and “bigoted.”

Gaines conveyed her lack of surprise at Olbermann’s criticism, noting his reputation for making controversial statements. She expressed pride in her swimming achievements and advocacy for women’s rights.

Furthermore, she emphasized her determination in the face of attempts to silence her, be it from Olbermann or anyone else.

Riley Gaines responded to Keith Olbermann’s critical remarks by sharing a video displaying her numerous SEC and NCAA medals.

“Hello Keith, when I was trying to show you my SEC award, it fell and the medal broke. That would have been unfortunate if i didn’t have more of those. But lucky for me I do, so let’s go through it.”

She made it clear that she remains unfazed by her criticisms.

“And so Keith, I will be really sad if I broke this trying to prove to an Old man, who can’t even seem to keep a job. But I got more of this so I am not. Thanks Keith.”
