Her Facebook is a shrine to the swimmer, with his photos plastered all over her wall and banner.
She also seems to repost any and all stories that mention their relationship.

In her post, Chandler also takes some time to discuss the difficulties she has faced in her life.
‘In my early teens I was medically diagnosed and went on testosterone blockers, at 15 estrogen enhancers. My birth certificate was modified along with my name while I was a teenager, prior to any corrective surgery,’ she explains.
‘I originally changed my name to Paige Victoria Whitney. At 16 I legally emancipated from my family. I had already left home at 15. At 18 I got in trouble twice, once for a bad check and then a DUI.’
‘At 19 I thought it would be smart to blackmail someone into giving me the money for my surgery. As soon as I received the money I was arrested and charged with extortion.’
‘I spent 30 days in jail because I was too ashamed to tell my family what happened thinking no one knew. Even though my birth certificate and drivers license said female they put me in a cell with 3 men and I was raped.’
She has since spent much of her life crusading for gender rights.
