The Rise of LGBT Athletes in Sports

A small article I did for WhatsOn magazine. In two recent articles Team GB is said to have showed more support for LGBT athletes over the past decade or so than any other and that we had at least 44 openly LGBT athletes at the recent Olympic Games in Rio. Overall I think this is an amazing achievement in the sporting world and definitely shows an increase in role models for the LGBT community with people such as Tom Daley, Nicola Adams, Tom Bosworth and Helen Richardson-Walsh

Has representation of the LGBT community in sport increased as more athletes come out all over the world in support?
