Gay athletes have probably been setting Olympic records since the days of the ancient Greeks. But openly gay and lesbian athletes are another matter, especially in the Winter Olympics, which makes a couple of recent milestones all the more noteworthy. First, Team USA’s Adam Rippon made history by becoming the first out gay man to medal in a Winter Olympics by taking home the bronze for his free skate performance. Then, Canadian Eric Radford became the first openly gay Winter Olympics champion after winning the gold with partner Meagan Duhamel in the pairs free skate performance.
