Riley Gaines is gaining the attention of media and sport-loving viewers after she raised her voice in Save Women's Sport. She shared a moment at the 2022 NCAA Swim Championship. 

Gaines, a University of Kentucky competitive swimmer, spoke out after tying with Lia Thomas, a biological guy, in the NCAA Championships. Gaines believes that single-gender sports should be preserved. 

Thomas swam for three years on the University of Pennsylvania Men's Swim Team as Will Thomas before shifting to the Women's Team as Lia the previous semester. He made headlines both in and out of the pool for smashing records and the destruction he left in female swimmers' paths.

Further, Gaines will be present as a speaker among other female athletes, including Tulsi Gabbard, Cynthia Monteleone, Selina Soule, Chelsea Mitchell, and Taylor Silverman, at the rally on Thursday happening in Washington D.C., according to Independent Women's Network.
