“You will never see anyone with a bigger smile than when she sees a beautiful electron microscopy picture of a red cell. She has never met a barbell, a bike, or a dog that she doesn’t like. She is so incredibly excited to race and represent the LA Sweat team this year!!!” the website read.

Saturday’s win is not the first time Thomas has made a podium appearance, according to a report.
