Lia Thomas is someone who has experienced immense popularity lately. Many have different opinions about Lia Thomas, but it seems that Thomas does not pay attention to such comments and that he lives his life and strives to be as good as possible in the sport in which he competes and that is swimming.
Jorge Masvidal, a well-known UFC fighter and someone who is also among the most popular within the organization, had a table to say about Leo Thomas, the first transgender swimmer. This famous fighter believes that Lia Thomas should not compete in the women's categories and that it is not fair, but the rules say otherwise, and there were conditions under which Lia could compete “It’s such a no-brainer right?” Masvidal said, as quoted by sportskeeda “It’s not fair.
It’s just not. Men should compete against men. If you don’t want to compete against men, it’s not fair to go and compete against women…" "I’m not trying to diss girls but it’s just different you know.
Girls should compete against girls."
Michael Phelps on Lia Thomas
In addition to Masvidal, the famous Michael Phelps made a similar statement a few months ago. Phelps advocates that everyone has one right, but they also advocate for the equality of all.
Many wonder how fair this is, but the rules are the rules, and under those rules Lia has the right to compete "I believe that we should all feel comfortable with who we are in our own skin, but I think sports should all be played on an even playing field," he said.
“I don’t know what it looks like in the future. It’s hard. It’s very complicated and this is my sport, this has been my sport my whole entire career, and honestly the one thing I would love is everybody being able to compete on an even playing field. ”
