Former Olympian Inga Thompson sounds off on women's group after controversial 'white supremacist' accusations

Inga Thompson, former Olympic cyclist, discusses an upcoming Capitol Hill hearing on a bill to block biological men from participating in women's Olympic sports.

Three-time Olympic cyclist Inga Thompson is sounding off on the National Organization for Women (NOW) after the group slammed a recent lawsuit filed against the NCAA by more than a dozen college athletes as an example of "white supremacist patriarchy at work."

Thompson, a decorated U.S. cyclist who competed at the 1984, 1988 and 1992 Games, spoke to Fox News Digital about the controversial social media post shared to X over the weekend.
