Schuyler Bailar dives in.

Among the first openly transgender collegiate swimmers in U.S. history, Bailar tells his story to “60 Minutes” Sunday.

Bailar was a top swimmer, with a mean breast stroke. She was also a terrific student when Harvard recruited her.

Since then, Bailar has become a man — and is the first transgendered athlete to compete in a NCAA Division I men’s sport.

Now 19, he swims on the men’s team. Bailar has not won a race since transitioning, and is fine with that.
