Green transistions to 'male'

Fijian and Australian rugby sevens star Olympic Games gold medallist Ellia Green has announced that she has transitioned to male.

The 28-year-old made the reveal in a video posted by the Bingham Cup, calling the decision, as 'the best decision of her life.

“I just knew it was going to be the most liberating feeling when I had that surgery and to be in the body I knew I had to be,' Green said in the video.

“That was a bright spark in my mind during these dark times facing demons, but I knew there was light at the end of the tunnel.”

Green thanked the help of his partner Vanessa Turnbull-Roberts and daughter Waitui, who have supported him through his transition.
