Gay Olympians

Last week the Russians adopted a law that bans the discussion of gay rights and relationships. I’ve never been to Russia and although Vladamir Putin seems like the kinda guy you’d like to have along on a boys camping weekend, I’m sure that on the ground the dictatorial nature of Russian politics isn’t pleasant.

For once I am going to praise President Obama – today he came out and said that instead of boycotting the Russian winter Olympics next week that it would be much classier to have some gay athletes win medals.

Memories of Jesse Owens winning 4 gold medals at the 1936 German Olympics in a racists Nazi Germany.

Does anyone know of any gay winter Olympic athletes? I know of the Olympic Divers who are gay – Matthew Mitcham (perhaps the future Mr. Evans) and Greg Louganis.

  1. The real RACISTS were very much closer to home. Hitler congratulated JC Uwens. The legend about not shaking hands because of his race IS FALSE; HE DIDN´T SHOOK HANDS WITH ANY NON GERMAM ATHLETE so disappointed he was.
    The REAL SHAME FOR OLYMPISM WAS AND STILL IS ELECTING A RACIST LIKE AVERY BRUNDAGE. HE WAS RACIST.

Let me know what you are thinking mate.....
