The Rio Olympics saw a record-breaking 56 out LGBT athletes, and now the Paralympics are breaking some records of their own. OutSports reports at least nine publicly out-of-the-closet athletes competing in Rio this year. Just like the Olympics, more athletes may come out as the games progress. The number of out athletes was supposed to be 10, but Great Britan Discus Athlete Claire Harvey had to drop out due to an injury.
