Openly gay diver Tom Daley is sure to be one of the most recognizable athletes as the 2016 Summer Olympics arrive in Rio de Janeiro August 5–21, thanks in part to his high-profile coming out and romance with Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.
But he’s far from the only openly gay athlete to root for at this year’s games. Others to keep an eye out for include New Zealand rower Robbie Manson, Canadian rhythmic gymnast Rose Cossar, British race walker Tom Bosworth and Canadian diver Jamie Bissett, We wish the best of luck to these athletes and all of this year’s LGBT Olympians. rio2016.com/en
