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?



Go Team GB @Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Currently watching the Closing Ceremony on BBC1. So, after two weeks of Olympic madness in Rio Team GB have achieved what many could only ever have dreamt of and actually beat Team China (and Team Russia, boo hiss) and made it to second place on the medal board winning an impressive 27 Gold Medals along with 23 Silver and 17 Bronze taking their total to 67 medals, probably the highest it’s ever been. I could not feel more proud of Team GB if you could ask me to be. Congratulations Team GB, you did us proud in Rio. Congratulations to all of Team GB including Nicola Adams, Jade Jones, Chris Mears, Jack Laugher, Mo Farrah, Greg Rutherford, the Brownlee Brothers, Joe Joyce, Mark Cavendish, Louis Smith, Adam Peaty, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Joanna Roswell-Shand, Tom Daley, Laura Trott and Jason Kenny; you did us proud




Go Team GB @Rio2016 Olympic Games

Though I mostly talk about music in this blog I thought I’d give a special shout out to Team GB who are busy competing in this year’s Olympic Games in Rio. At the last count they’ve managed to win 14 Gold 16 Silver and 7 Bronze taking their current medal total to 37, go Team GB, all the way from the UK.
