Her sexual orientation and passion for swimming made Lia Thomas a social media sensation rather than a household name, unlike many other superstars.
Because she chooses to keep her personal life secret, not much is known about her at the time of this article’s creation.
Lia Thomas As A Man, Before And After Surgery
Lia Thomas’s photos as a guy initially named Will Thomas, and her before and after surgery pictures can be found freely on the web.
The trans athlete even documented her transition from male to female to several podcasts or media channels.
The 22-year-old Lia has encountered various backlashes for her victory because the swimmer previously competed in the swimming championships as a guy before for three years as a male.
According to Fox Sports, the NCAA law specifies that those transgender players who have completed one year of testosterone suppression medication can compete as women. And, there is no wrong with Thomas’s side as she has dwelt by the established law and is eligible to play in women’s competition.
Some social media users also showed their displeasure and frustration describing Lia as a failed male athlete.
